Parroting. Where is this? Looks like a prison, or former insane asylum in the background.

Love the semeiology in this one. The lonely rock supporting the structures of the background.

On the Portland UK peninsula, there is a prison, but not at this location. Its a stone quarry, this place is level and disused now (I think) but out of picture to the right is an active quarry area.
