Travel theme: Edge

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.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Hi Ailsa, I like both of your quotes and all of your photos for this challenge. It has been a while for me posting here, but I think this Great Blue Heron is sufficiently on edge, himself, to count:
