Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

Picture of Sunken Church Steeple


No, your eyes aren’t seeing double–and yes, the rest of the church is submerged. I immediately knew which photo I would use for this week’s challenge. I took this picture about a month ago in Curon Venosta in Northern Italy. During my brief visit, I learned the original town was flooded in WWII to make way for a lake. No reparations were paid to the citizens who were forced to relocate.

  1. It’s difficult to “Like” such a tragic story, but it’s a beautiful image of what is now a monument that stands in memory of that terrible event. Great example of refraction! 🙂

    • Nicola, I know what you mean about it being difficult to “like” the tragic story that goes with this photo. The quick stop is just another great example of how travel can bring so many surprises and expose us to all matter of living situations and people.

  2. This is a great photo Jeri and I read up on the history behind it before I commented. It’s definitely beautiful in your picture and it looks almost eerie in winter with the lake frozen over. Thank you for sharing 🙂
