Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Ever-changing skies

Dark clouds touch the horizon

Unexpected grace

Landscape cast in high relief

Light shines against the shadows

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken over the moors of the Derbyshire Dales, when we were out exploring some of the ancient sites that abound there.

Spotlight – Photo prompt round-up: Memory #writephoto – by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Ancient dancers pause

Hearts open to their secrets

Offering welcome

A marriage ring of earth and stars

Flesh and divinity joined

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at an ancient stone circle in Cumbria. Long Meg and her Daughters had ambushed us, late one wintery afternoon and we have been back to the circle several times since then, even including it on Full Circle, one of our workshops in the landscape.

Long Meg herself is the tallest stone and she stands apart from the circle of her dancing daughters. She is carved with spirals, now weathering into memory, and her presence, both in physical and psychic terms, is immense.

Photo prompt round-up: Entrance #writephoto – By Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Bewitched and entranced

Accept the journey within

Embracing shadow

Light and darkness meet and meld

One step beyond the threshold

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the hills above Castleton in Derbyshire, at Odin’s Mine. Named for the Norse god, the lead mine was first worked it is thought, during the Roman Occupation. Fortunes were made and lost here in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

We came across the old mine workings by accident, at a time when Odin had made an unexpected, yet central appearance in our book, Doomsday: The Ætheling ThingToday, there is just a cave, the sheep… and a strange, amorphous occupant, caught on camera…

Thursday photo prompt: Fume #writephoto – By Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

#writephotoWelcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

Throughout the week, I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as time and space allows, usually in the order in which they are submitted. Please be aware that I tend to schedule reblogs in advance and these spaces fill quickly so an early submission is more likely to be reblogged.

All posts will be featured in the weekly round-up on Thursday, 9th January at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, as long as it is fairly family-friendly.

Submit your link by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 8th January.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 11th December and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family-friendly.

*As I will be away from the computer for the next few days, reblogs and comments will depend upon what WP lets me do with my phone… which seems a bit hit and miss these days.*

**Please note that many people on WordPress are having problems with pingbacks not getting through. They do need to be approved manually before they show on the post here, but to be sure, …
