There’s something strangely peaceful and calming about abandoned places. Nature has a way of gradually reclaiming them until all that’s left are skeletal ruins in the middle of a sprawling forest or desert. Maybe it’s the mystery of what happened there or how they’ve been taken back by nature.
What do you think of hearing the words “abandoned place?” Do you imagine a spooky, run-down house in the middle of nowhere? A factory with broken windows and graffiti tags covering every surface? Maybe an amusement park with all the rides long closed down? All of these places fit the bill for abandoned locations.
But what about nature taking back these spaces? In today’s blog post, we’re going to take a look at 30 examples of nature reclaiming abandoned places all over the world. From city parks to entire neighborhoods, Mother Nature is never one to give up without a fight!
So sit back and prepare to be amazed by how much life can thrive even in the most unexpected places.
It’s interesting to think about how these abandoned places are being reclaimed by nature. Whether the vines take over an old building or the sand slowly buries a city, these photos show that nature always finds a way to survive and thrive.
