Photo prompt round-up: Dark #writephoto


In silent shadows
Perfect serenity waits
Open to the light
Earth reflects heaven’s canvas
Beyond it we see our selves


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken a few years ago in Cumbria, in the Lake District, when my son had taken himself north for an early foray into independence with his wheelchair. I met Nick there and, leaving the wheelchair at the hotel, drove him through the hills and passes of a wintry landscape, stopping…or so it seemed… in every lay-by for the pair of us to take pictures. Some of those photos remain amongst my favourites.

My son, whose memory of earlier times has large gaps in it since the attack that left him with the effects of brain injury to surmount, had forgotten why I love the northern landscape so much. ‘Now I know what heaven looks like,’ he said.


Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. There were so many contributions that I could not reblog all of them, however, all the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as possible as they come in and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

Pingbacks do not always come through… 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.

Come and join in!
