A ferry coming into port at Dover

I was hiing along the trail at the white cliffs of Dover. The trail looks out over the English channel which is one of the business shipping lanes in the world. I captured this moment where a ferry coming into port was framed perfectly by the undulating hills. The sense of scale and perspective is also quite surreal and abstract with the frame of the hill which drops away immediately to the sea, and the tiny distant boat in the middle.
