When our Artists Travel, Photographer, Alice Donaldson goes to England


'Dover Castle's', location, commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the Continent,
has given it immense strategic importance. The chalk of Castle Hill has been shaped and reshaped over the centuries into massive earthworks, ditches and mounds. Imposing walls and towers have been raised and networks of tunnels built beneath them. Henry II began the building of the present castle in the 1180's, and over the next 800 years its buildings and defenses where adapted to meet the changing demands of weapons and warfare. 


'Man O' War' cove is located on the English Channel, on the Jurassic Coast of England. This stretch of coast was formed by the uplifting of continents, million of years ago.


On the Thames River: This photo was taken on the 4th of July. We 'silently' celebrated, amongst ourselves. What better photo to take than 'Big Ben' (names for the Bell) and Parliament.
