It has a solid presence and reeks of history. Is this on the UK coast, Grouser?

@Michael Skorulski: Mediterranean coast of Spain. Round beacon turrets ring the coastline here with more major forts like this one at strategic points
I like the textures.

Nicely centered frame with this impressive watchtower. I've seen them along the coastlines of several countries and I wonder how effective they were ...

@franz: The system of round towers linked to these ones were beacons so the best time to invade would be in foggy weather :)
At once a beautiful image of a historical artifact and a reminder that our species just can't seem to get along.

Bob Dylan. Very commanding and solid. I feel its strong presence

@Ruthiebear: Quite so though it's the Jimi Hendrix version that comes to my mind first
I imagine this dates back some time, but it is in pristine condition!! Great capture against a splendid sky.

@Steven: Original system was built by the Arabs. These ones were built by the Spanish in the 16th century. Many, like this one have been restored
what a massive structure here !!!!!

A beautiful image. I like how you composed this. The tower looks so well built. Like it could withstand weather and invasion. The architecture is interesting as is the shape. Beautiful color and textures.
