The photo was taken just after 7.00 am on Saturday, 29th of May, 2010, from a point between the Northern Porthole Shelters (to the right) and the Lighthouse (to the left) on the Prince of Wales Pier (western side) in Dover Harbour.

The caption to a first photo, taken a few seconds earlier, has more information:

Footage from the Dunkirk evacuation is shown in "Dover in World War Two: 1942", a ten minute British Ministry of Information film, released by the US Office of War Information, and narrated by the American journalist, Edward R. Murrow.
