Flanigan shows Chip his personal boundaries (no one was hurt.) Plus, there's a fence in the background, the boundary of my property.

A couple of summers ago, I hiked to Connecticut 4th Lake (the headwaters of the Connecticut River). It was a awesome hike, especially for my aging body. It's in northern New Hampshire. In order to get there you have to go to the regular Canadian/American border station, park your car between the two stations and then start hiking up and up and up some more. The path takes you across into Canada across this marker and then back into the US again across a similar marker. Easiest border crossing I ever made. I made sure I had my passport along, in case I got lost in the woods in Canada. Heck there might have been a bear checking passports.

I continued my vacation by taking a trip down the Connecticut River which is the boundary between the states of Vermont and New Hampshire. It then continues down through Massachusetts and Connecticut. I crossed every bridge and went to every boat launch, and had a thoroughly good time exploring the river without having to get in a boat.

A philosophical and practicle appeaoch in the first photograph; the beach is a boundary of sorts, between land and water but I took this picture because of the line between wet and dry beach sand.



And here is the boundary between 'mainland' Ireland and the Atlantic Ocean, 'Europe's most western frontier' The Cliffs of Moher. Beautiful, imposing and (if you have vertigo) terrifying



Trust a Dutchman to come up with two boundary photos involving water

My second entry, representing an ancient boundary. Hadrian's Wall, marking the northern-most limit of the Roman empire (at the time it was built).

Some parts of the original Roman wall still exist, although most of the stone has been reused or reassembled into a traditional dry stone wall. The older Roman parts are the ones that look neat and ordered, as in the above picture. The wall used to be much taller - only the bottom parts remain today.

oooo. Steven's picture of Hadrian's Wall reminded me that I have some shots of the Great Wall in China. Alas two's the limit and I'll stick with the chosen ones because of the local (to me) interest.

I love all these pictures. They are stunningly unique and good and interesting pictures.

ARGH! I'm blond for a reason. I was here about 10 minutes ago. I typed in my comments and then logged out without posting them. I need a picture of the boundary between my actions and my brain.

@ AnnMarie

I especially love the pic by Lanen because photographs of persons standing exactly on a border, or multiple border, are always interesting (nobody photographed him- herself standing on the equator?)
and
blondmom's second pic with the water so blue and absolutely flat, without a ripple in sight.

also at AnneMarie.

P'ter, is there a story behind your wall or is it just a lovely piece of brick work? It looks quite old. I agree: Blondmom's second picture is fabulous. I also especially like Han's first picture - it's very creative and unusual. (However, shouldn't a Dutch theme on boundaries involve a wall and a finger as well as water? )

Steve: the wall is known as a "crinkle-crankle" wall. (Don't tell Hans, but they were originally Dutch!) The sinuosity lends a lot of strength so they don't need buttressing. They were often used around kitchen gardens with fruit trees in each south facing bay.

This particular one is part of the wall right round Easton Park in Suffolk. It was originally about five miles long (bits have been taken down to allow for new housing estates) and, it's rumoured, was built by French prisoners of war around 1800.
