Photo prompt round-up: Turrets #writephoto


Half veiled by nature
Keeping treasures safe within
Safe from prying eyes
The castle walls enclosing
What the ego seeks to hide


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken during a snowy walk with Ani, lookingΒ  towards the rooftops of Waddesdon Manor, the magnificent chateau that houses so many fabulous works of art.


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! Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes!

A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time 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. Especially as WordPress has been behaving rather strangely this week. Again.

Come and join in!

  3. I did have a go this week so have not forgotten you but still couldn’t get the pingback sorted. I agree Waddesdon manor is superb but as the home of a Rothschild only to be exected I suppose. Anyway here it was, Great selection this week.
