Thursday photo prompt – Thaw #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 it to yourself until the challenge is closed.

Throughout the week I will feature as many 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 27th December 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 28th December.

 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!

    A very seasonal image this week, Sue! I was trying not to be Christmassy – not sure if I succeeded!

    I’ve already written a couple of festive stories, so I used the picture to go somewhere a bit less cheerful!

  9. I hope you don’t mind me using a second hand story, but the photo is just too appropriate. No Christmas in sight either.

    What a beautiful photo! Of course, I love the mountains, and snow covered mountains are the best. I have been straight out at work all day, but wanted to write something, so here is a poem – much shorter than my usual entry 😉

  24. Here’s my story on the prompt Sue. Had decided to write a children’s story today, irrespective of the prompt, thankfully, the prompt was generic and happy enough to help me do that 🙂
