The same situation is happening in the bakside of Yangtse River because of the super dam. Many small towns and villages are more than 1000 years old. Man created the civilization and abandon them.

I've always wanted Lyonness to re-emerge. Then maybe we would find King Arthur!!

In South Tyrol, Italy near the border to Austria there's the small village Graun, which was submerged about 50 years ago because of a dam(n) project. The only visible thing left is the steeple of the local christian church.

How do we know that's not an Italian ICBM silo?

I like the Italian ICBM silo shot in the summer better, nice lake reflection and all...lets you know it's hidden under the lake. The winter shot just makes it look out of place and not sinister enough.

Did anyone else notice that the ICBM silo is slightly tilted in the winter shot? Is this just an illusion or could the ice tilt it like that. I know that ice can be very powerful, but wouldn't it just stay that way?

Comparing the angle of the flat land on the left, I'd say the camera was held differently. So maybe it's always tilted and the summer picture makes it look straight.

There was a town in Nevada that was submerged when Hoover Dam was completed as well, and due to lower water levels, it's re-emerging as well....

I still like Kitsune's lost factory town in Florida with the Haunted Bar (ooooOOOOOOOOoooooo!) remember that? Where is kitsune, anyway??
Griff Thursday Mar 10 05:24 PM
That was cool. We need more ghosty town type pics like the Chernobyl deal.
