Photographer's Note

A needle painted, photographed, described and filmed thousands times ....
But do you actually know how it was formed? It's another story ...

The existence of three successive arches: la porte d'Amont, la porte d'Aval et la Manneporte is not originally related to marine erosion, but to the action of a coastal river, parallel to the beach, which has incised the cliff before its decline, embodied by the "needle" of a harder limestone which prevented its final dissolution. Then, the sea has widened the arches, giving the site the appearance we know today. (Wikipedia)
