The Azure Window is already a thing of the past

Yesterday one of the most sought-after tourist attractions in the archipelago of Malta literally disappeared. A rough sea and a stormy weather caused the limestone natural arch to collapse. Nothing unexpected though; specialists had warned that, due to the quick erosion of the stone, it was a matter of time that this happened.

Not even two months ago I was virtually walking on top of it; now there is nothing else than water.

The sea created it, and the sea took it away.

    • J’espère pas, dans les médias je n’ai pas entendu que cela soit arrivé au moins.
      C’est trop dommage pour le pays, ça rapportait pas mal d’argent.
      Et trop dommage aussi pour les photographes, l’endroit était bien inspirateur 😉
