A Cold and Frosty Sunrise in Dover Harbour, Kent, England, United Kingdom

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Victorian Prince of Wales Pier in winter. Right of centre, the lighthouse (or "light") behind the Harbour View Cafe was built in 1902. It is a 46-feet high stone tower with a very quick flashing green light (VQ, 100+ flashes per minute). Left of the cafe is the distant Admiralty Pier Light, the Western Entrance, English Channel, and Cliffs of France. Port of Dover Tourism, Travel, and Vacation.

Wednesday, 12th of December 2012: The two bulk carrier ships and one cross-channel ferry on the sea horizon, along with the faint outline of the Cliffs of France, are only visible on higher resolutions. A view taken closer to the Harbour View Cafe on the same day is shown in:

A Winter Sunrise on the Prince of Wales Pier, Dover Harbour

The Prince of Wales Pier was named after Edward VII who, as the Prince of Wales, laid the foundation stone in 1892. The pier opened in 1902.

The Admiralty Pier Light is located at the end of the 4000-feet long Admiralty Pier. It was built in 1908 and is a 72 feet high cast iron tower with a white flash every 7.5 seconds when in use. Operator: Dover Harbour Board.
