Repose ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #112

Maligne Lake, Queen Elyzabeth Ranges, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
I paddle on the water, rippley
The lake upon my shoulders, heavy
This effort bringing me repose
When following where nature goes

Last week we panned for Gold. This week, let’s bask in Repose. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of kayakers on Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park, Alberta.

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: Gold
Gold, Rock, Athabasca Glacier, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
Challenge #111 ~ Gold
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #111 was Gold, along with this photograph of stratified rock at the Athabasca Glacier, in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Four glittering responses for Gold this week. Thanks everyone! =)
