The thin strip where water meets land isn't exactly the intertidal zone because lakes - even the Great Lakes - don't have tides. But whatever we call it (ideas?), it's still a place that is in a state of constant change. And when you look straight down, you never quite know what you're going to get.

Your turn: Another place of constant change might be...?

One more thing: This photo supports this week's Thematic Photographic theme, nature. We'll be taking submissions and links all week, through next Wednesday, so click here to jump in with both feet. Caption This gets a new pic tomorrow (Sunday), but you can still show some love to last week's entry - and win some Web notoriety in the process, by heading here.

That reminds me of a picture I captured in Maui last May, watching water flow in and out of a tidepool. I put it up on Flickr.

I believe the correct name is the "littoral zone" which can apply either to the ocean - which has tides - or to lakes, whcih don't
