The picture shows the ruptured dam in Desna, the Czech republic. The dam was built on Bila Desna river in the Jizera mountains and it was finished in 1915. In 1916, a year after its existence, the dam ruptured and it swept away the part of region Desna. This is the biggest disaster due to dam rupture that ever happened in the Czech Republic.

In the photo itself, you can see Bila Desna river flowing to the tower which was the part of the dam. We took the picture just after raining when the sun started shining what makes a nice atmosphere and colors of this image.
