Break the rules: Travel Landscape

Challenge #3 in the Travel and Sports series. Hosted by bikinchris.
Challenge has finished
This idea is totally stolen from a post by Thom Hogan: Break the photography rules, but make a better image by doing so. No rule of thirds? no problem. Best shot wins, but break the (composition) rules okay? Break as many composition rules as you want. Sometimes, you need to know that the rules won't work. VOTERS: Vote low for any image that has perfect rule of thirds, balance or imbalance by way of rule of thirds, etc. The more perfect the composition fits the (normal) rules, the lower you should vote.

88th place (joint)
Light towers to me have an air of what is called "Fernweh" in German – meaning your heartfelt longing for some faraway place(s). And I like the idea of them giving you a guiding light on your way to wherever your "Fernweh" leads you. Leaving Hook Head (Ireland) with its almost 1000 year-old light tower, this look back under the calm evening sky impressed me deeply.
