Photo prompt round-up: Storm #writephoto

Beyond the stormclouds

Where hope pierces the darkness

The sun is shining

Even a broken fortress

Can give solace and shelter


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at the ruins of Kilpeck Castle in Herefordshire. We had gone to Kilpeck to visit its famous Norman church with its spectacular carvings around the door, the west window… and the amazing corbels.


What we had not expected was the quiet serenity of the interior, or its wonderful apse over the place where underground streams are said to meet. Nor had we expected the land to wear so many memories of ancient settlements… or a moated Norman Castle on the very doorstep of the church.

And, as luck would have it, the castle provided us with a perfect setting for a photoshoot for the book we were working on at the time…  Mister Fox and the Green Man , a pictorial retelling of Arthurian tales that feature the Green Knight and Sir Gawain. And one of those pictures provided an early writephoto prompt…



Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.

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!
