Last week we traversed the Rapid. This week, let`s cuddle under a Blanket or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a comforting blanket of fresh snow on Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

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 images
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • 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: Rapid

Challenge #169 ~ Rapid
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #169 was Rapid, along with this photograph of the rapids below the Athabasca Waterfall in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Six bloggers braved the Rapid this week. Thank you, everyone! ❤

Happy Creating!
