Drowned Churches

Now that’s what you call holy water! These are the incredible pictures of centuries-old churches rising out from the water which has drowned them. The extraordinary shots show where people knelt and prayed surrounded by walls of spectacular architecture – now just a supersize home to fish and weeds. Some have been washed away for good, submerged beneath gallons of water with just the highest peaks standing proud above the surface, the lovingly carved pews and altars ruined.
