Nature’s Forces….


Although I’m glad I took this photo, I didn’t need it to recall the scene.  The photo was taken from our borrowed car, from a bridge on the outskirts of Ludlow, England way back in 2007.  We were there on a house exchange holiday (which was marvellous, by the way), and had arrived in the town just after some major flooding had caused this damage.  The bridge we were on was also being reinforced, as you can see.  

But this image is absolutely seared onto my memory.  The (literal) suspension of a moment in time……… When I read the theme for this week’s photo challenge, I immediately thought of this.

The Forces of Nature, indeed.   Perhaps the house was built a tad too close to the waterway?

    Fantastic photo and perfect for this challenge. That impeccably made bed juxtaposed against all the destruction just stopped me in my tracks this morning. Great photo!

      I understand your reaction, completely. It’s haunting. I’d love to know the story here……

    Wow! Destruction does not usually look that ordered.

      It’s amazing, and a little eerie….. The room suspended like that….

      It’s a difficult one to “like”, for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes. It’s shocking how quickly everything is turned upside down.
