I think these places are only made beautiful with the right lighting and camera filters. Nothing wrong with that, though. :tu:

For some, like #22, it's good they are abandoned. For most, though, I'd dearly love to know why they were abandoned. They just look so sad.

The German fishing hut looks like a perfect place to spend an afternoon, and I don't fish.

I love photographing the insides and outsides of abandoned places.  These are great photos.

Beautiful pictures! Thank you for posting.

Just for information's sake.... The Christ of the Abyss statue was not really 'abandoned'. It was cast to be submerged, along with some others around the world cast from the same mould.

Just clear out the water on the floor. :)

Here are some personal pictures I took of that lake. The Konissee, it's awesome:

Beautiful pictures, Sweetpumper. :yes:
There is something hauntingly attractive about deserted places.. You just want to know how it was for those that were there before.

Crap. I posted the same one twice. Yes, I'd live in that hut, flooded or not.

Beautiful pictures, so many of those places are hauntingly stunning.

It really is. All the tour boats are electric as not to pollute the lake. The water was calmer than I've ever seen in a lake that size. The forest is exactly how I would imagine it in a fairy tale.
