Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

From Inishmore, Aran Islands.

We generally think of walls as beings of structure and order, but this image shows their hidden chaos.  The stone walls of the Aran Islands are famous for their unique structure and ubiquity; there is so much stone in the ground, the inhabitants had to pile it up somewhere to clear fields.  There are miles and miles of stone walls on the islands, all hand-made without mortar.
