Its been a while since I've done some urban HDR photography
I was visiting Antwerpen in Belgium the other day and had some time to kill.
So i decided to take the car and drive to this nearby "ghosttown" called "Doel" this is really one of the most creepy places I've ever been in my life, no lies. Goosebumps all over and shivers were running down my spine when walking there.
Doel is a 700 year old village on the river Scheldt in Belgium. Near
to the local nuclear power plant, with its two giant cooling towers,
it became the target for demolition not once but twice in order to
make way for the ever expanding harbor. The successful protest groups
of the seventies could not compete in the 90's and as residents began
to leave, the government refused to rent out the properties again and
instead let them fall into disrepair.
On the 23rd of March 2007, the government decided that the village would be demolished by 2009 and in June 2008, residents received a letter informing them that they were to vacate their homes by the 1st of September 2009.
