WPC: Edge

The Daily Post Challenge this week is Edge, and the first thing that came to mind was waterfalls going over the edge, but I haven’t come across too many that allow getting to this angle safely.

Lake Powell in southern Utah has more shoreline than the Pacific Ocean along the continental US.  In this early morning photo you can see the shoreline’s sinuous edges.

Sand dunes sometimes have well defined edges, such as this one shown here from Death Valley National Park, California.

These massive boulders are hanging over the edge of a cliff along the drive up Mount Lemmon, just outside of Tucson, Arizona.

There are few canyons in the desert southwest as impressive as Arizona’s Canyon de Chelly.  Spider Rock, shown here at the edge of darkness, can only be seen by walking to the edge of the canyon.

Window Seat VII: Earth or Mars?

Well, the obvious answer is Earth, but several locations I’ve flown across bear resemblances to sci-fi movie settings.  These are all desert locations, so it probably helps that I fly in and out of Las Vegas.  This also means we’re still at an altitude low enough to see great detail.
