Strait of Dover and Dover, United Kingdom - November 26th, 2008

Thanks to a gap in the clouds, we are able to have this clear image of the city of Dover and surrounding land, in southeastern England.

Upon careful examination of the coastline, we can just barely discern the light color of the famous White Cliffs of Dover.

The body of water is the Strait of Dover, connecting the English Channel to the North Sea, and the small tip of land visible on the right includes Calais, France.

Before the construction of the underwater “Chunnel” (Channel Tunnel), the ferry route between Dover and Calais was the quickest way to cross between the island nation and continental Europe.
