Chernobyl being taken back by nature

In a recent article on the Daily Mail website, photographers got some excellent aerial shots which show how nature is slowly taking back the town of Chernobyl.

“Devastated by the worst nuclear disaster in history, Chernobyl is now a barren ghost town slowly being forgotten.

These astonishing aerial photographs of the former power plant and the neighbouring city of Pripyat show how they are becoming hidden from view as the surrounding forest closes in.

Following the disaster – which occurred during a systems test on April 26, 1986 –  the Ukrainian government evacuated 350,000 residents from Chernobyl and Pripyat.”

  1. Nice entry, I really enjoyed reading about this and seeing some stunning photographs. It’s a shame that it will take years on years or it could possibly be never that Chernobyl becomes once again habitable.

  2. So weird to see a wasteland like Chernobyl, especially nowadays. Almost everywhere in the world is getting so crowded. Hopefully one day Chernobyl wont look like it does in these images.
