Villa Epecuén is the name of an Argentine tourist town in ruins, located in the district of Adolfo Alsina, province of Buenos Aires.

Located 7.3 km from the city of Carhué, it was founded in 1921 on the shores of the lake of the same name, and once had around 1,500 inhabitants, being visited by an average of 25,000 tourists during the summer for its hot springs.

In 1985 a flood caused by a rising lake submerged the town completely under water, forcing the entire population to evacuate. Later, in recent years, the water began to recede, exposing the ruins of the city and its surroundings, which have become a tourist attraction in themselves.

I invite you to watch this sensational video of the place that you will surely love;

Remarkable image as were the remarkable, if tragic, past events. Love the wide view, the stark roots, the treatment and the two lines of trees far back in the bg.
Make your life spectacular!

This really tells the story-so stark and forlorn. Thanks for the visit....

It takes a really amazing black and white landscape shot to stop me in my tracks - and this is it! Stunningly beautiful, yet haunting at the same time. Superb work, Mario!

The monochrome treatment is perfect for this image.
Good comp, I also like the two treelines on the horizon.
