Method of measuring the distance to horizon

With a photo of a suitable bit of coast with landmarks, the intersection of the horizon with the coast can be determined by the point of inflection of the edge of the sea. eg.stretched2.jpg viewing point.PNG DSCF4545.JPG
 
I also took photos of the point at Tonfanau from various known heights from nearby. Visibility was poor today..
