Photo prompt round-up: Guardian #writephoto

Ancestral faces

Ever-watchful guardians

Ward the shores of time

Ebb and flow of history

But the twinkling of an eye


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the Cornish coast near Carn Lês Boel, not far from Land’s End. It is an exceptionally beautiful place, but it was not the aesthetics that had drawn us to visit the prehistoric promontory fort there, but the fact that it is here that the ley known as the Michael Line makes landfall.


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!

    Thank you I did not know about the line – The Saint Michael’s line is a postulated ley line connecting monasteries dedicated to the Archangel Michael in Europe and in the Middle East. & The Sacred Line of Saint Michael the Archangel represents, according to legend, the blow the Saint inflicted the Devil, sending him to hell. ~ there must be some further legend for that story.

    Thank you for sharing your travels and verse.
