Abandoned fishing village. China
This fishing village illustrates the case when the nature shows its superiority over man. This abandoned place was found at the base of the River of Yangtze, on the Shengsi islands, China.
Such once a bustling village was left by its residents. Over time, slowly but surely, it has been absorbed by the local vegetation due to the warm and humid subtropical climate. It is covered with greenery so thickly and evenly, that has gained an incredible, beautiful and just a fabulous look. Some scientists argue that many cities of the planet expect the same fate.
Photographer Tang Yuhong has shown the power and the beauty of the natural forces by his photographs. Such a photographic journey perfectly shows how nature can reclaim back her property occupied by a man. Like a warning it shows that once everything and everywhere was hers. Trembling takes over you while looking at these shots resembling the post-apocalyptic world where the skeletons of high-rise buildings are barely visible.
