Winter is Here, River of Golden Dreams, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
The freeze is coming
Soon will river ice over
You below the ice
Winter is Here
The River of Golden Dreams

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we chilled like Ice. This week let’s try to keep from Freezing, or seek something else to inspire you in this photograph of a wintry River of Golden Dreams in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

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.

The previous challenge was: Ice

Challenge #261 ~ Ice

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #261 was Ice, along with this photograph of a glass bust backlit with blues and ambers.

Three bloggers chilled like Ice this week. =) Thank you, everyone!

Happy Creating!
