As writers, many of us use the things we see around us as inspiration. Sometimes we have an audio prompt – a conversation overheard, a snapchat or message on our phones, even a snippet of a song on the radio – but often it is the things we see that start the cogs turning. With this in mind, I want to share with you these pictures taken very early on Sunday morning in the Teign valley in Devon. Taken an hour apart, the contrast in the colours and feel of the photos is quite dramatic, and has already sparked my imagination to write a competition piece. I hope you find them useful too. Just imagine the gentle sound of the trickling water and the chattering of the birds in the reeds and you’re almost there…
An Hour Later
Like the in-coming tide, I hope the pictures get your creative juices flowing!
