Greetings, ATS!

I've got a great link for you, if you love amazingly beautiful photography. Apparently these photos are of abandoned ruins, many being reclaimed by nature. Kinda reminds me of the television program "Life After People."

Anyway, here are my favorite five photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Tunnel of Love, Ukraine

Abandoned Mill from 1866, Sorento Italy

Eilean Donan Castle



Sunken Yacht in Antartica


And my favorite one of all:

The Hotel Del Salto, Tequendamo


This picture reminds me of haunted castles....its beauty is breathtaking.

I hope you enjoy the photos, and that they resonate with you as well.

Amazing pictures.. I would love to see pictures from then and now and also know why they were left to decay, guess I have some research to do. Thanks for posting.

Smylee, those were absolutely awesome. Thanks for sharing. I have to tip my hat to the photographers though. They did some excellent work on these. All of them were exceptional, but for some reason, this one caught my eye.



You know what they say about pictures...

They were probably abandoned because the up-keep would cost a fortune. They could have made it accesable to people by giving tours, having weddings or something to keep money coming in. A shame to see a castle go to waste. If I lived closer, I'd just move in.

Great photos, thanks.


I cant believe these places are still inctact like that, surely someone would have taken the piano. The seats at the theatre must be worth $100 each sold in a NY garden shop or retro furniture place. If I had a place like this near me I would have a hard time obeying the 8th.

Fantastic pictures. Thanks for posting. But Eilean Donan Castle is not abandoned, it is a thriving tourist attraction and is fully kitted out in regalia. One of Scotlands finest castles.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the correction!

For Christmas I bought my husband a foot of land in a Scottish castle. They were selling the square foot to raise money for restoring the castle....you got a nice certificate saying you were a Scottish Laird because you owned a piece of the land. I don't know about the legality of the "Laird" title, but it was a neat idea to raise money and a cool gift. I have a fascination with all things Scottish, so it worked for me. And my husband got to go to his students and tell him he was a "Laird" and what that meant.

I would love to visit this castle someday. It is breathtakingly beautiful.

The Hotel Del Salto looks like it would be the perfect location to shoot a horror film.
