Now I stand alone
The day after a 97% partial eclipse of the sun, a high spring tide and swell driven by strong northeasterly winds brought a relentless succession of large waves crashing into the coast on the North East of England. Marsden Rock is an imposing 100ft high sea stack of Periclase and Magnesian Limestone. It was once a pair of stack joined by an arch. Now due to the never tiring erosion of the sea only the larger Stack remains and it now stands alone. One day it too will be consumed by the continual pounding of the waves.
