102-year-old floating forest, Australia

The SS Aryfield is just one of the abandoned boats left in Sydney's Homebush Bay. The bay was used as a site to dismantle boats from all over the world. After the bay was closed, some ships stayed there forever. In fact, Homebush Bay became a floating cemetery for decommissioned ships. Over time, the ships became densely forested and took on a mystical appearance.

Last house on Holland Island, US

This house shows the battle between man and nature. It was built in 1888. For several decades, it was not subjected to erosion, provoked by its proximity to the coastline. But despite all the efforts of the last owner to protect the house, the waters and weak soil pulled the house off the island and into the sea. The house finally collapsed in 2009.
