“Nail houses” are homes that their owners refuse to leave them to make way for new constructions. Contractors must build around them in order to continue the construction. So the buildings are left solitary like stubborn nails. But in most cases home owners are forced out of their properties as authorities pressure them with extreme measures, such as cutting off utilities, or just offer higher compensations.
In 1985 after a long period of heavy rains a dam burst and Epecuen, a tourist small town on the banks of a salt lake in Argentina, was submerged beneath 10 metres (30 feet) of water and 1,500 residents fled their homes.
Since 2009, the level of the water has been decreasing and therefore exposing the ruins of this once popular lakeside resort. Only one man Pablo Novak returned to the town, spending his days cycling around the ruins.
Light pillars form when a bright light (from the sun, the moon or man-made light sources) reflects off the surfaces of millions of falling ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds. The pillars, which are often mistaken for UFO sightings, are typically seen in polar regions and they might lengthen or brighten as you gaze at them.
