Flood Waters Inundate a Bangkok Airport cropped.jpg

Summary[ ]

English: It would be easy to assume, at first glance, that the watery rectangle in this image is a harbour. Narrow structures extend into the blue water like docks; small white dots break up field of blue like ships on water; and the structures lining the area resemble large warehouses. But on closer inspection, it becomes clear that the white dots are airplanes, and that the watery rectangle is the submerged runway complex of the Don Muang Airport. Flooding is most obvious at the airport, but much of the area in the image is flooded. The spaces between buildings and under trees are blue.
