Photo prompt round-up: Way-stone #writephoto


Which way to travel
Every choice may lead you home
Eternal questions
Knowing only one answer
Follow the path of your heart


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken one cold and windy morning in Shillito Wood, on the edge of the moors near Sheffield. The way-marker is a medieval cross, thought to have been placed there by the monks of Beauchief Abbey, which was founded in the twefth century and remained a monastic house until it was dissolved in 1537. Parts of the Abbey still survive, now serving as a parish church, and it was in the old Abbey grounds that we had a magical encounter with a stag at Hunter’s Moon. There is the base of another cross close by, and the Fox Lane Cross still marks the pathway across the moors, as well as raising a few questions of its own.

It took me a while to catch up this week, so last night was spent in reading. I can never quite get over the sheer variety and creativeness displayed by those who contribute to these prompts! Thank you so much to everyone who took part. Once again, there were too many reblog all of the posts, but they are all 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 resposes!

Pingbacks do not always come through… and I can miss things too, so 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.

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.

As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details

Come and join in!

    I think I screwed up royally last week, and I have only just realised that my pingback didn’t work. I usually check, knowing what I am like, but…
    Probably too late now, but here it is anyway…
    What is it with me and pingbacks?

    Another bountyful crop of entries this week. I thought it maybe a cross, I nearly wrote about crosses along the line of Markers for a dead king or Queen, then changed my mind at the last minute. 💜💜💜
