Thursday photo prompt: Tranquil #writephoto


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 13th March 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 secluded corner, with calm water reflecting the green leaves of summer .

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday March 14th 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!

    Hi, shared this to Facebook and Twitter. Will also share to LinkedIn. My press this and re-blog buttons seem to have disappeared. Probably some more gremlins on my end. A great photo description this week. I have great ideas for it but since I do not currently have a computer I do not dare try LOL. Thanks for a great post and thank you for describing the photograph.

    Hi Sue. It looks peaceful. It also looks like summer, and sicne we have snow on the ground and it won’t get above 20 F/ -7 C today, I need a bit of summer. Though perhaps not too hot…

    This is not part of my current serial – I was completely uninspired to write a new chapter of it.
