Changing of the guard
From life through death to rebirth
The seasons turning
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at the Imbolc celebrations in Marsden, West Yorkshire, a few years ago. The night is lit with flames, green, white and gold, as the Frost Giant is challenged and defeated by the Green Man, reclaiming the earth for the coming of spring. And, when that battle is won… a Silver Fox echoes that challenge, facing a giant Crow, as Mister Fox and the Demon Dogs contend for the land…
Imbolc signifies the coming of spring, but today is the Eve of Beltane which heralds the coming of summer. And, while the many traditional festivals that mark this change of season will be absent this year, Nature herself is celebrating the return of the fertile sun.
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…
