Actually, I too thought that it would have been more than just one
tower. The only thing I wonder is how much is actually left. It's
certainly more broken than the scene on the image. But replace those
metal structures with plants that overgrew and now link the different
parts of towers and buildings and it will already look much more like
an old, elvish ruin.
Anyway, I like the idea, as it would make the place much more
interesting as a single tower.
