Thursday photo prompt: Beneath #writephoto


Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in. Every Thursday at 10 a.m. GMT, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I will feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week.

Please note that as we have a workshop this weekend, I will be away from the computer for a while and responses, reblogs and the approval of pinbacks may be delayed.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 19th December and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a gnarled, winter tree, and the sun glowing behind the hills, reflecting in the waters of a clear lake.

If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.

Pingbacks need to be manually approved, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish or you can replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work. Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

Meanwhile, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest!

Have fun!

    Lovely Sue, are we still in Scotland this week? It reminded me of a scene from my new book, so I’ve used an excerpt – hope that’s allowed (also, so busy with Christmas and work, it helps!)

    Hello campbellsworld followers and new visitors. Here’s a prompt challenge I hope all will take.
    Sue has even described the photo for those of us who cannot see it, so there’s no excuse to not participate.
    Thanks Sue.
    Now, yall get those creations going.

    Hi Sue,

    Very close to the deadline. Here’s my contribution. Lovely photo of the mountains and the lake. Very tranquil.

    Hi Sue,

    I just realized that I was nowhere close to the deadline. I missed it completely. It has been a crazy week with Christmas fast approaching. My apologies.
