Thursday photo prompt: Chill #writephoto

Welcome to Sue Vincent’s weekly Photo Prompt challenge:

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a landscape wearing a light dusting of snow. From the hill, where skeletal heather and brown grasses pierce the snow, a valley spreads out below, lit by the rays of a pale sun.

The land was cold and barren, save for some diehard vegetation that had adapted to survive and sent out wiry creepers both above and below the surface.
Once in a while dark turned to blue, shadows merged and the landscape was cast in an eerie light. Pillars of yellow rose from the depths, reaching skywards to call to the sun, but were thwarted by a solid impenetrable veil parallel to the horizon.
The sun had forgotten this place. Chilled forever, ice and snow remained all year, but then time meant nothing here anymore.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Very real Di, I can feel the cold πŸ’œ

    This is a fabulous post so evocative, I feel the cold.πŸ’œ

    • Thanks Willow. πŸ™‚

        A pleasure Di hugs to you and Maggie

      • You too. How’s Tess doing in the build up to Christmas?

      • willowdot21 says:

        John is now in a home permanently and she is feeling lonely and I think guilty but on the up side she has become a great grandmother! She will be spending Christmas with all her family and their partners and children πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ how are you keeping and what are your plans πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

      • I am sorry to hear that, but think it’s for the best. She certainly shouldn’t feel guilty for something out of her control. Dementia affects so many, not just the patient.
        How lovely though that she’s a great gran now. I’m glad she’s spending Christmas with family.
        I’m doing amazingly well…. it’s hard to believe my surgery was only 6 weeks ago, but I’ve healed brilliantly. I feel really good, though get tired easily, but the scar is fading already and is flat and even. My surgeon did a really neat job. Plans are for a quiet Christmas, then hopefully get some of Hubby’s issues sorted in the New Year as they had to go on the back burner because of ‘Dick’.

        I am so pleased to hear that you are doing so well, sounds like you had an amazing surgeon. I am so pleased for you. I do hope you can sort hubby out as well. I hope Tess will enjoy her Christmas and be happy πŸ’œ

      • My surgeon is one of the best and didn’t mess us about, so we liked her on sight.
        Hubby is now being referred to a dietician for his cholesterol. Apparently the meds he’s on work on the food he eats, so
        as he’s not eating so much ‘bad stuff’ now, we seem to have shot ourselves in the foot. He can’t take statins, and we know
        he can;t eat the leafy green veg high as it’s high in Vitamin K which affects his warfarin. We’ll get there.

        I know you will, because you deserve to πŸ’œπŸ’œ
