    Dover (4)

    Three more pictures from Dover. It was a weird day in terms of light, I think. Some pictures have a better daylight quality in them, others are duller. Anyhow, I really enjoyed that day. The fractured landscape is amazing and I managed not to fall over the cliffs!

    It must be quite windy over the white cliffs of Dover. I liked the shape of this little bush. All the vegetation on top the cliffs is combed this way.
