Wow, thanks everyone — can someone explain how you used google to identify the place and how to find the many websites that used the picture? This all seems like magic to me.
There are a number of ways and some depend on what device you view your post from.

From an Android smartphone there is an option when looking at an image called "lens". This refers to a Google product called Lens which is designed to do image searches. See screenshots below.

Some common sense is also needed to exclude the image from China.

Amazing, but I love it when AI goes wrong. In my Google photos archive, when I did a search, it showed a photo of a lady wearing sunglasses in one of the circles. Not recognising her I clicked and discovered that she was a total stranger in a crowd scene. It was a sunny day and so Google had collected together every shot in which somebody was wearing sunglasses!
What was the expression? Garbage In, Garbage Out?

According to Google this picture is apparently taken by Benedicto Santos who titled it "Coastal Road through Caravia". So somewhere on the Norte in Asturias near Caravia.
Taken just before Arenales de Moris on the cliff path to La Isla. Where the beach ends in the first pic looking back from the outskirts of La Isla. The second pic taken in La Isla itself is the same hill profile as the original post.

I am not great with identifying places, but a friend has asked me if I know where on the Norte this could have been taken. I bet some of you can help. Many thanks, buen camino, Laurie

Hi everyone, I'm Laurie's friend, who asked her to identify the spot. I was going to be in the area and was curious to find the very spot, so one nice, sunny, Sunday morning I walked all the way from La Espasa beach back on the Camino to Arenal de Moris, without success. But then, on my way back to La Espasa to get my car, I found the very spot, at the very place where you reach La Espasa beach. Here's the spot:

I tried to get the very same perspective but there was no way it could be done: I asume the spot the original picture was taken from years ago is now on the very air, as the cliffs are slowly worn down by erosion from the sea and rain...

Anyway, thanks to every one for their input trying to find where the place was!
