Not much left from the destruction after WW1 hit the belgium city Ypres. Nice photo that pans across a wide shot of the centre. Press on the picture for a larger version.

Ypres WW1 1917

Soldiers of an Australian 4th Division field artillery brigade on a duckboard track passing through Chateau Wood, near Hooge in the Ypres salient, 29 October 1917.
 
Iconic photo, must have been dense woods at some point prior to WW1. Look at the complete devastation left behind.
