This work resulted from a day-long fifty-mile circular walk via Dover. Hamish Fulton took this photograph, which shows a view over the English Channel, from a position above the Dover cliffs. The photograph records the early morning light; the coast of France resembles a dark island on the horizon.

Before setting out Fulton did not have a clear idea as to what direction he would take or what he might see on the walk but having photographed this view, he realised that it was entirely appropriate to his feelings about that particular day.
