Thursday photo prompt: Snowfall #writephoto

#writephotoA seasonal image this week…

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 30th January 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.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows  a tree in a heavy snowstorm. Beneath the tree is a huge stone, alf hidden by the snow, which may ( or may not) look like some large creature….

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday January 31st at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. 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.

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 link your post to this by creating a pingback. 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!

    Reblogged this on Campbells World and commented:
    OK here’s a chance for you to let your muse take control, use your imagination and show your talent.
    To visually challenged writers this photo has been described so there’s no reason that you cannot participate.
    Take a chance and show us what you’ve got.

    I used this photo again, Sue, as I wrote some background on one of the characters I was introduced to in the story I originally wrote for this prompt. This is one powerful prompt. Thank you again for taking me where I needed to go.
