Visual inspiration

EmbleyI posted this image on my page at Six Sentences but thought I’d post it here as well. One person said she’d found it  inspiring and asked if I minded if she used it as starting point for a poem. It makes me happy if people want to use my work as visual inspiration.

For me, the act of taking photographs is a way of countering the mental effort of putting words together, I don’t use the resulting photograph as a visual stimulus for my writing. But then I took the photograph, so the image is already imprinted in my memory.

BTW, this photograph isn’t what you might think it is. Any guesses?!
