Photo prompt round-up: Serenity #writephoto

Seeking solitude

Being lost to find oneself

Nature’s healing touch


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the estuary looking across to Edinburgh in Scotland… where I should be by the time this is published!

We liked these photos so much that we used one on the cover of our book, Beck ‘n’ Call.


Please note that there will be no writephoto prompt for the next two weeks as I will be away from the computer…and hopefully without any kind of wi-fi signal at all 🙂

My apologies for a dearth of comments this week…time ran out on me. Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.

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!
