Photo prompt round up – Waiting #writephoto


 Who or what awaits
Mysteries glimpsed in shadow
Footsteps in the dark
Fear or anticipation
Drawing us ever onward


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the Hellfire Caves in West Wycombe, where Sir Francis Dashwood and the notorious Hellfire Club once met. While the caves themselves are curious, reputedly haunted and the subject of much speculation, there is more to capture the imagination on the hilltop above, where Dashwood built the family mausoleum…and a very curious church.


Due to the Silent Eye’s workshop, I was unable to reblog posts this week, for which I apologise… I had hoped to have more time, but things were pretty hectic and I am still attempting to catch up.

There are some superb entries this week!

Thank you so much to everyone who took part.  All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author! Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes!

A new prompt will be published later today. As things should now be almost back to normal around here, 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!
