Sinkholes

Also looked further into Sinkholes, geologic events happening in limestone-like condition where holes up to several tenth of meter suddenly appears. It is basically porous soil being swallowed by pocket of underground water. It is not supposed to be a sudden event but the reinforcement of ground condition in urban environnement (road, pavements, foundations, slabs) ‘hold’ everything until the very last moment, making these event often dramatic. This ‘dramatic’ and sudden condition is precisely what is interesting because it creates very uncanny situation and recorded images of these event tells a lot about this condition. Some really look like Photoshop collages…

    Totally photoshopped! Probably you bumped into it – the Dead Sea has crazy sinkholes all around because the level of water is decreasing –
