Photo prompt round-up: Caught #writephoto

Sinuous dancer
Raising her arms to heaven
Calling down the sun
The dance of light is calling
Embracing eternity


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken as we wandered through a Yorkshire wood in search of a dragon. Although it was a beautiful day, the wood was strangely silent and the song of birds was absent, even beneath the beech trees.

The dragon in question is a local legend, immortalised in a  humorous 17thC poem, and the story tells how a knight, Moore of Moore Hall, brought about its downfall using a spiked suit of armour. We failed to track down the dragon on this occasion, but one of these days we will find its lair.

In the meantime, a rather sad pine plantation provided us with a little shade and a glimpse of beauty.


Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. I reblogged as many as space allowed and all the posts are listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author! Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round-up and the individual responses!

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.

Come and join in!
