  The Three Towers, as seen from s'Gravensteen
by DrewV

No, it's not an extended version of a Tolkien book. The Three Towers dominate the Ghent skyline, running in a line along CataloniŽstraat from the central canal. Nearest the canal (right to left in my photo)sits Sint-Niklaaskerk, followed by the Belfort with its clocktower, and lastly, Sint-Baafskathedraal (St. Bavo's Cathedral, if you prefer).
