What’s The Prompt: Show Us Your Winter’s Light

What’s the prompt again?

Good Morning All and welcome to a new Friday. As I started my day some hours ago and got to thinking about what I could offer as a new prompt for the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’, I found myself thinking about December 21st, the first official day of winter. The Winter Solstice, as it is called, has the distinction of not only ushering in the last of the ‘four seasons’ we experience each year, it is also the shortest day of the year; the day with the least amount of light radiating from the skies!

Could I create a worthy prompt of the challenge from this last fact in particular? It would need to be something we could all relate to, yet define differently… could I?

I say yes, and the prompt I’m placing before you today is:

Show Us Your Winter’s Light

Now, you don’t have to wait until the Winter Solstice (December 21st) to answer this challenge. Instead, as me and my buddy Dale like to do is give you the weekend in preparation for a Monday reply.

As always, if you choose to join in on our challenge, you get to create, edit, imagine, define the prompt in any way you choose. We like to see full on creativity at its finest, its most innovative, its… well, you get the picture… and we’d like to see if you’ll join us with your very own picture(s) describing Winter’s Light as only you can describe and define it.

Want to take on the challenge? It’s really not hard at all. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Create your post as you normally do. Give it a title relating it to the challenge (pssst, check out the title above for clues!). Create a ‘pingback’ by copying your post’s URL and come Monday, paste it into the comment section of either my Monday post here on Obzervashunal, or Dale’s post- check him out here. Lastly, be sure to add the tag #CosPhoChal (Cosmic Photo Challenge abbreviated) to your post’s tags and you’re done.

Here’s hoping whether you join in or not you all have a fantastic weekend!

    1. Thank you, my friend. I always appreciate your voice and your encouragement. You know… being the fantastic writer you happen to be… I’d be all for you writing a ‘prompt answer’ about your take on our Bay Area Winter’s Light… that’s got ‘the epitome of coolness’ written all over it…?

      1. Man put me on the spot. I don’t celebrate xmas so I haven’t really noticed too many holiday lights around the bay besides the ones you post. I’m a hermit crab this time of the year.

        1. Lol! Didn’t mean to put you on the spot and hey, I don’t celebrate xmas either so we’re alike in that aspect. (I tend to commune with the ocean for xmas and even more so for New Year) I was thinking more of sunlight, sunrise or sunsets for this time of year when California sun changes so much. I’m thinking my prompt post will lean more in that direction naturally. Not that a post with xmas lights can’t work too! But all that to come back to the original point: You’re a great writer sooooo… maybe consider it? And if not this one maybe something further on down the road?

          1. I know what you mean. Ocean Beach is like a sacred space for me. This year I spent lots of time in the Botanical Garden for the same purpose. That reconnecting you mentioned is very important.
