Shore

Shore: the abrupt separation of land and sea; not the space but the separation. The boundary in the foreground in the image from Reydarfjörðdur, Ísland, below, is not a shore but a strand, a space of spreading out between two shores; the more abrupt “shore” or shear is by the aluminum smelter in the background. A sea has many different edges.
