Photo prompt round-up – Deep #writephoto

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Stump Cross Caverns in Yorkshire. About a quarter of the known four miles of the caverns are open to the public. Fossilised bones of bison, wolverine and reindeer have been found in the caves that were formed 500,000 years ago, when the ocean covered the land. I used to love visiting these caves as a child with my grandfather and mother, both of whom would spin stories around the strange formations of the stalactites and stalagmites. There is a story that one of the explorers found and underground lake in the caverns, but sealed the entrance when the owners refused him a share of the profits. There are still caverns yet to be explored… who knows what may yet be found.

Thank you to everyone who took part this week. There are so many wonderful contributions! Please click on the links below to visit all the posts and leave a comment for the author! A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week… but given the volume of entries we are getting now, that will not be all of them. All contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

The vagaries of WordPress mean that occasionally a pingback won’t get through. If you have written a piece for this week’s challenge and it does not appear below, please leave a link in the comments and I will add it to the list.

Come and join in!



In the womb of time

Stories weave a deep magic
