Stretching across the lower half of the photo is the row of large terraced houses of Victoria Park, to the left of which lies the southern entrance to the Zig Zags; if you know where to look, the West Wall of Old St James Church is also visible (bottom right, in a line under the end houses of Victoria Park).

Within 5 to 150 yards of where this winter photo was taken from are: Cowgate Cemetery Nature Reserve, the Court’s Folly, the 64 Steps, and the Drop Redoubt.

This is the uncropped version of Dover Castle in Snow and Sun, Winter 2009, from the Western Heights.

The uncropped version also appears on the Pinterest Dover Castle and Pinterest Dover in Winter boards.
