I went up to Fleetwood today – to blow away the cobwebs – and came back with this. Unusually, I used fill-flash on this shot as it didn't seem likely I'd be able to rescue sufficient detail in the posts by any other means. Had it not been quite so windy I might have tried a multiple exposure HDR, but there was a very strong on-shore wind so that wasn't really an option.

Update: following a couple of the initial comments I decided to rework this one a little – the sky is now a little more dramatic and the foreground is marginally lighter. The original version, should you be interested, is here:
