Photo prompt round-up: Guarded #writephoto

A silent presence

Both guarded and guardian

Hidden in plain sight

Hearts open to wonder see

Magic wrought in living stone


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the moors where Yorkshire meets Derbyshire. The boulder guards the pathway that leads down to the troll bridge in the valley before climbing up to the enigmatic plateau of Carl Wark.

The plateau stands almost invisible from this angle, its bulk hidden by the darker outline and higher elevation of Higger Tor on the horizon. But it is at Carl Wark that the touch of ancestral magic is felt…


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. I will reblog some of the contributions as they come in…  and you can find all the entries on the original prompt post in case I have missed any… or please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

Please be aware that because of the change in my health and the demands of treatment, I may not reblog as many posts from each challenge as before and cannot promise a full round-up post every week… though I will do my best.

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!
