Photo prompt round-up – Watchers #writephoto

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the slopes of Fin Cop. You can see these rocks from a great distance, but it is not until you get closer that you see the Giant whose story still lingers in folklore… or see the faces in the fractured rocks. We have had nothing but difficulty with this site. It took ages before we finally managed to get as far as the Giant… we still haven’t found his rock in the stream and no-one seems to know where it is. Or if they do, they aren’t telling...

Where we would really like to get to is much higher, right on top of the hill… the site of the ancient hillfort of Fin Cop. The archaeology itself looks fascinating, though the only ‘digging’ I can do is online. Sadly, though, the site is on private land and every lead I have found and approached has ended in silence. Which just makes me more determined than ever to visit the site of this ancient and mysterious massacre...

We did manage to find the Giant, though, and the faces of his watchers gave us the cover for Scions of Albion, the third book in the Doomsday series.

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. Pingbacks do not always get through.

As always there were some superb contributions this week and I would like to thank  everyone who took part. 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 as they come in and all contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

Divergent realities
Meeting eye to eye
Which of us is the watcher
And how would we ever know
