The Needles

The Needles is a row of three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise about 30m out of the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight, United Kingdom. The formation takes its name from a fourth needle-shaped pillar called Lot’s Wife, that collapsed in a storm in 1764. The remaining rocks are not at all needle-like, but the name has stuck.

  1. thanks for the history – very interesting – and the seris here is nice and I like how the boats in the last photo give us a human feel for this place – and a modern touch. Nice take on the TS words for this month. 🙂
