Kolmanskop, a ghost town buried in the sand
Soon the metal screens collapsed and the pretty gardens and tidy streets were buried under the sand. Doors and windows creaked on their hinges, cracked window panes stared sightlessly across the desert. A new ghost town had been born.

Unforgettable pictures. There's a scene quite like this in Steve Erickson's "Days Between Stations."
