Bending Light

The abandoned town of Kolmanskop in Namibia used by the management of the nearby diamond mine is slowly being consumed by the sand dunes. The missing roof allows the sunlight to stream through during the middle of the day creating these interesting streaks of light that bend around the walls of these abandoned rooms.
