Coastal Defences

Image
"A Defended Coast, Keiss", watercolour, 25 x 36 cm This scene interested me because of the time-scale represented by the different buildings. The distant castle was built around the beginning of the Seventeenth Century, whereas the foreground structure is a pillbox gun emplacement from World War II. In fact there is even more history covered: although they don't appear in the view, two brochs * , take us back to before 100 AD.
