Photo prompt round-up: Shimmer #writephoto


A world not black and white

Untold promise shimmering

Light pierces the clouds

Dissipating delusions

Illuminating beauty


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at the end of our workshop in Cumbria last December, as the late afternoon sun shimmered on Derwentwater. It was a magical weekend,  during which we took our companions to the stone circle of Long Meg, Mayburgh Henge and Arthur’s Round Table, as well as a castle and other sites in the area. We also visited Castlerigg, one of the most beautifully situated sites, several times over the course of the weekend, experiencing a moment of pure magic as the sun set on the final day.

Thank you very much to all who took part this week. With the weekend workshop, I was unable to reblog as many as I would have liked and apologise for the delay in responding to posts. Normal service has now been resumed!

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!

Thank you to all Contributors… please click the links to read and comment on the author’s site.
