I didn’t get enough sleep last night and am a little on edge, so I’m funneling my edginess into this week’s travel theme. Here are a few edgy moments I’ve encountered along the way.
The edge of Croton Dam where the water starts to tumble over the spillway.
Looking over the edge of a speedboat on Lake Atitlán, I caught a little of the boat’s spray in the bottom of the frame.
Sun peeps over the edge of a slot canyon in Zion National Park.
Vibrant colours trace the edge of a sulphur waterfall in Yellowstone National Park.
Hopefully this week’s theme has got you on the edge of your seat. If you would like to join in with your own interpretation (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Edge
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday

I love the photo from Yellowstone Park. Someday I’ll get there to see it myself.
Oh I hope you get there soon, it’s like no place I’ve ever seen before, strange, alien, devastatingly beautiful. xxx

Oh that verandah photo is gorgeous, and your grandson brought a great big smile to my face. 🙂
YES, you’ve posted another photo of the sulphur waterfall. 😀 So very beautiful! As is the peeking sun in Zion National Park. Thanks for another great challenge, Ailsa.

Woah, that Lake Powell shot gave me vertigo, that is one scary edge, Marion! And what a stunning photo of Horseshoe Bend, the colours are magnificent. xxx

Oh Ese, Yellowstone blew my mind, I couldn’t stop taking photos. 🙂 I love your take on this week’s theme, the one that really caught my eye was that boat alongside those houses in Norway, those houses are so close to the water’s edge it almost looks like Venice. Where was that photo taken? Lovely choices. xxx
Here is my entry for this week’s challenge: http://wp.me/p24idL-2r9
Ooh Allan, such a visceral shot, the textures are gorgeous. xxx
Thank YOU for the topic.
Thanks for posting so early. Hope your edges are smoothed out by a glorious Friday. Lovely photos, as always! xx
Hya Del, just saw your post, I love love love it – that building shot in Virginia is wonderful and ahh, that orange-edged rose, how lovely! I had a rather wonderful Friday as it turns out, driving around discovering new places to photograph and write about, so I forgot all about being tired, hurrah. Have a lovely weekend. xxx
So glad you had a good day! xxx

I hope you have recovered! Great shots and I love Zion of course…My favourite pick will be the dam – your first shot. Somehow it speaks to me…a rounded and smooth edge?
Hope you get good rest and recover this upcoming weekend, Ailsa. I love this theme. Great selections.
I remember Zion! What a beautiful space and what a beautiful image you captured there.

Talk of being on edge… walking around Dublin today… damp, not too warm… nothing going my way! On edge… yep!! The edge of un-reason? 😉
I was out snuffling round the coast, AJ, got soaked to the bone and almost blown off the edge of the planet, but it did make me forget about being tired. 🙂
