Default Azure Window of Malta Collapses Into the Sea After Storm

Quote:
If youíre headed to Malta, donít expect to capture the Azure Window in shiny filters for Instagram. The popular limestone arch collapsed into the Mediterranean Sea on Wednesday.

Thanks to my brother living in Malta (and various friends paying attention to the news) I saw this yesterday morning in the Times of Malta, before it got to wider news outlets.

Quite sad - these things only exist because of erosion, and so erosion eventually has to destroy them as well, but it's still a surprise when it happens suddenly like that. You would generally expect landscape features to be permanent, but of course they aren't. It's odd to look at my photo below and think that the massive stone pillar and arch in the background has gone before any of the people in it, or even the dog!
