A Natural Landmark Gone; The Azure Window




Natural landmarks are favorite locations for photographers all over the world. One of the most popular and highly photographed was the Azure Window of Malta. Sadly, a strong storm with gale force winds finally demolished the natural arch today.

The fall of the limestone structure was deemed inevitable by scientists although they speculated it would not happen for some time. As a precautionary fines were put in place for trespassers. Despite signs and fines to discourage the popular tourist spot from being abused, up until a few days before its collapse people were seen walking and standing on it.

Photographers the world over have expressed their dismay at losing such a favorite natural landscape. The country of Malta has expressed "the collapse a major loss to Malta's natural heritage"
