Ghost towns have an eerie yet tranquil quality. Watching nature reclaim the space is beautiful, especially when we can admire a solemn structure in a remote location. It is also slightly sad to think of those who once inhabited such places. The absence of their past owners leaves these houses with a ghostly stillness. Check out these 16 haunting images taken by photographer Britt M. on a journey through a rural ghost town in her home country of Norway.
As the world changes around us, houses such as these stand still in time. The photographer stated, "The modernization of society has made many old jobs obsolete and it's increasingly difficult making a living in these remote areas."
