Golden tears tumble
The past creates the future
Dying for rebirth
Tomorrow from yesterday
Endless promise of beauty
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Alderley Edge in autumn. These ancient beechwoods are as mysterious as they are beautiful. Legends abound, both ancient and modern, for it was here that Alan Garner set his stories and those who read The Weirdstone of Brisingamen and its sequels will recognise the landscape.
Loving the land here, Garner used many of the old stories as the basis of his own tales. There really are tunnels beneath the woodland floor, lost caverns and a Golden Stone on the Elven Road. Who knows, perhaps the wizard is still sealed in his caverns with the sleeping knights too…
Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week and to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual responses! A new prompt will be published later today. As always, 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 next Thursday.
All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!
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.
An invitation to writephoto writers…
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 writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.
Come and join in!
Many thanks to this week’s contributors:
