João Mourão from Amadora, Portugal

Looks like the dog is a Don Quixote. It will face the army of lighthouses instead of Don Quixote windmills.
Fantastic composition with the light house reflection.

This is stunning Ian...I'm always partial to a lighthouse anyway and this is beautiful but that detail of the dog is His Masters Voice meets Talacre!
