Hi! I need to be informed. Coming from the other side of the lake I don't know what chalk needles are. The painting is wonderful. I like the blues. Are chalk needles hills with large calcuim deposits?

Wonderful painting. The colors and rendition of lighting provide great visual impact.

The colour is so dramatic and the contrasts play against each other beautifully... This is excellent!!

Completely stunning, Henry, a wonderful depiction of these chalk stacks!
Sylvielu, yes it is soft rock with a high calcium content. They are chalk stacks, standing in the sea off the south coast of England.
I tried to find a link to information and photographs but strangely I struggled.
