Just how many lights does one headland need?

Clearly this is an ancient maritime site (the ruins are I beleive St Methieu priory) - I have not been able the identify the third light tower which may be some sort of radio beacon tower or even an old signal station (where they did semaphore perhaps).

Thank you for looking - I would welcome you comments as always (+ive and - ive).

Best wishes

Robert

Thank you all very much for your comments. Tim that is interesting there is also a crease noticable bottom right - I think I have inadvertantly buttonised (or 3D'd) this image - for which I apologise - I didn't mean no arm by it gov'nr!

Thank you John and Dave - Yes a very starnge bit of French coastline - the Atlantic Ocean gets pushed through a bit of a needle here - so there are tides and tide races that almost make Alderny look tame. The coast has a really ancient feel to it - and I would guess there has been habitation here for thousands of years - the land is fertile if not a little windswept.

This is a peacful day - I have seen this in stormy weather and it is pretty impressive (you would need a disposable camera!!).

Thank you so much Ray and Derek - tbh I was worried about the sky because it looks a little like an overblown HDR type sky - but the sky really has not been mucked about with apart from a tweak with curves to enhance the drama.
