The Needles, Isle of Wight, England, UK

It looks like an iceberg, but’s it not.  It’s chalk.  Here the white cliffs of Wight dwindle in stature until they know they must give up the ghost and succumb to the sea.  Ultimately, the fate of The Needles is the fate of the entire island:  the sea’s only goal is to consume the land.  [2011]
