Port of Entry, Kent, England by 


Dover is a major Port of entry to England from the Continent and also this morning it was the port of entry to a magnificent sunrise.

This shot was taken from The Warren, Folkestone looking out toward the Port of Dover which is just around the headland. I had a wonderful morning in the company of my RB friend, and super seascape photographer, Stuart Chapman We met up at 04.20 in Canterbury to catch the dawn and sunrise at 05.50!

PLEASE VIEW LARGER

Canon 400D, Canon EF-S 17-85mm Lens @ 30mm, ISO 100, f16 bracketed +2, 0, -2 EV’s. Originally a 2 vertical frame HDR panorama cropped to 14 ins square for a ‘tighter’ shot. processed in Photomatix Pro, stitched in Autopano Pro and finished in CS5.

The coastline between Folkestone and Dover exposes rocks of Cretaceous age (142-65 million years old), including two rock exposures of particular importance. The series of cliff sections at the western end of the site, with some 50m of Folkestone Beds (Lower Greensand) and Gault, represents the most important single locality for studying these rocks in England. The Gault Clay exposures in East Wear Bay yield beautifully preserved fossils, including ammonites, bivalves and crabs and have also produced the fossilised remains of a number of types of marine reptiles including turtles, ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurus and pliosaurs.

    Good morning, Bob. This is a gorgeous capture. I mostly remember Dover approaching the white Cliffs. Now i shall think of the sun sitting on the water somewhere between Dover and Calais. Nice. Sally
