Photo prompt round up – Blue #writephoto



Hearts seeking solace
See the heavens reflected
Earthly emotion
Painted cerulean tides
Touching horizons of tears


Silent solitude
The colour of compassion
Brings peace to the soul
Waves whisper on the seashore
Wider horizons open


Light and darkness play
Dancing on the turning tide
Between night and day
Possibility ripples
In serene celebration


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Scotland a few years ago, looking across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh. We had broken our journey, between seeing the incredible Ruthwell Cross and visiting St Andrews, to stay with a with a friend and visit the Abbey in Dunfermline. We also took the opportunity to visit a ruined kirk in the early morning light. I have no idea what the camera thought it was doing when it took this picture…it usually does only what I ask it to do, but it seemed to want to get creative and gave me this…for which I am truly grateful, as it captured the mood of the morning.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week…especially during the holidays! As always, I have shared as many contributions as I could during the week, but all the posts are listed below, please click on the links below to read them 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. All contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

If you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.
