Rainbows ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #101

Rainbow in the Spray, Athabasca Falls, Athabasca River, Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada II

Even the appearance of a rainbow
Cannot dispel the darkness

So I plumb the darkness
Seeking the rainbow within

Last week we tested our Mortality. This week, let’s chase Rainbows. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a rainbow in the spray of Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

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

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 — whether on WordPress, Instagram, Flicker, Tumblr, etc. — you can also:

  • Add a comment on this post to announce your response
  • Apply the tag/hashtag “Pic and a Word Challenge” or “#picandawordchallenge” to your post

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: Mortality
Cairns, Athabasca Glacier, Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
Challenge #100 ~ Mortality
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #100 was Mortality, along with this photograph of cairns at the toe of the Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

I kinda mucked up last week by not putting the challenge name in the post title. Ooops! Nonetheless, a couple bloggers figured it out and tested their Mortality this week. Thanks you two! =)
