Thursday photo prompt – Ebb – #writephoto


Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt. If you know where the photo was taken, please keep the location to yourself until the prompt has closed.

Throughout the week I will feature a number of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every week, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week, but given the volume of contributions that may not be all of them!

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 1st November and link back to this post with a pingback. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.

Pingbacks need to be manually approved, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

The best way to ensure your post is featured is to send it well before the deadline but all posts will be included in a round up on Thursday 2nd November.

 Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish or you can replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work. Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

Have fun!

  1. Rolling hills of green, seen through Sue’s soul. As the world grows cold, the grass weeps knowing the time to freeze is amongst us all, until spring appears again granting us warming kisses of thaw.

    Great photo Sue, a dramatic landscape led me to a dramatic story. Look forward to seeing what others made of it. 🙂

    I bet you didn’t think anyone would turn your beautiful photo into a political statement, did you?
