Photo prompt round up: Shelter #writephoto


Stand on the threshold
Are you looking in or out
Which way will you turn?
Birth into day or shadow
Do you know the difference?


Perception is skewed
Misled by appearances
The darkness within
Silent womb leading to light
Reawakening wonder


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Thor’s cave in the Manifold Valley. I came across it quite by chance one day; I had heard of it, but had no idea I was so close and the sight of it stopped me in my tracks. Knowing that the cave has a very long story in human history, myth and legend,  Stuart and I visited the cave as soon as we could and, although it was impressive enough from the outside, what we found inside was astonishing.


Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week.  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. As always, I will reblog as many contributions as space allows, 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!
