Prince of Wales Pier Sea Fog, Dover Harbour, Kent, England, United Kingdom

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Far to the left, the entire Eastern Docks have been engulfed, and the fog creeps over the Hidden Houses of East Cliff there; a mile out to sea, the massive Southern Breakwater has suffered a similar fate. Only here in the west does part of the Admiralty Pier and this first section of the Prince of Wales Pier remain free. But not for long: the dense main mass has yet to arrive...

A winter seafog from the English Channel but only a "baby" one, especially in height: people living on the highest floors of the seafront Gateway Flats above Marine Parade had blue skies and probably could have watched the sunset to completion. The height and density of the developing fog is indicated in:

The photo was taken on the esplanade from near the Clock Tower and Esplanade King Charles II Memorial at 5.02 pm on Tuesday, 19th February 2013, while on a cycle ride from Robsons Yard.
