There is something hauntingly beautiful about destruction. It
just shows how powerful the forces of nature really are and how insignificant we humans are. We as humans have changed the course of nature and have tried to distance ourselves from nature, inspite of being part of it. Sometimes nature just shows who the boss is in a fight between humanity vs nature and gives us a lesson that everything moves towards entropy. So we have compiled a list 80 pics demonstrating what large scale destruction looks like.
