Photo prompt round-up: Soar #writephoto

All colour stolen

Skies dark with threats of danger

Rise to the challenge

Wings spread wide the soul may soar

Seeking a silver lining


The photo for this week’s prompt really seemed to capture the imagination of many!

The photo was taken one summer’s day above the reservoirs of the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire. I was, in fact, trying fairly unsuccessfully, to capture the resident bats as they flew from tree to tree… and this flight of birds against the dark clouds was a gift. The shot was taken in colour… and is still in colour… though the world looks monochrome through the lens and against the light.


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!
