Blue ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #53

Deep Blue Sunset, Point Imperial, North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, United States of America
No matter the depth
Of the blue I fall into
There is light above
And a vibrancy of life
I can climb to

Last week we delved into Shadow This week? Discover the beauty of Blue, or find some other topic or theme in this photograph of sunset from Point Imperial on the Grand Canyon’s North Rim.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Sunday mornings.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or an image
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Place the challenge’s Pic (if you use it for inspiration) and Word prominently in your post
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response

To help us find your response, you can also:

Each week, I’ll list the previous week’s responses at the end of the new challenge. I may also share some on my social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.

Last week’s challenge: Shadow
Shadow in the Sand, Ming Sha Shan, The Mountains of Singing, Sands, Dunhuang, Gansu Province, The People's Republic of China
Challenge #52 ~ Shadow
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #52 was Shadow, along with this photograph of my elongated shadow falling upon the vast dunes of Ming Sha Shan, The Mountains of Singing Sands, in Dunhuang, China.

Three respondents stepped out of the shadows this week. Thank you! =)
