As per Margot's comment, you should be doubly afraid when the photographer has prior experience using heavy equipment in demolition.

As per pic #8, the appearance of construction equipment near an abandoned bridge is never a good sign! Lol

Photo #7 is very beautiful for some reason. I think it's that the waterfall reflects the blue sky.
