    What a lovely photo! Thank you for sharing. I wished I could have responded to your last photo prompt, which was terrific, but I am in NaNoWriMo madness. I’ll come back to it though! Have a great Thanksgiving.

    Wow, that is some dynamic photo. I’d like to be sitting there with a notebook, camera, colored pencils, etc. Happy Thanksgiving to you and thank you for the continuing inspiration.

    That’s a totally awesome photo. It inspired this very short piece:

    The black rabbit ran across the manicured lawn of the Wingdon Golf Course. The fluffy grey and white clouds in the sky looked ominous as the sound of thunder rumbled in the distance. He retreated quickly, his tail bobbing as he bounded.

    He slipped into the warren just as the first big drops of rain splashed down against the ground. The rumble of thunder now joined with the patter of the rain drops as they landed above the warren. From the safety of his home, the rabbit could hear the huntsmen’s calls.

    ‘He’s gone down! He’s gone down!’ came the call of a loud deep voice.

    ‘Argh! Where’s the ferret when you need him,’ responded another slightly higher pitched, but still deep, voice.

    ‘Don’t worry Jim, we’ll come back with the ferrets. At least we know where to look now. I bet there’s a whole family of the little critters down there. Let’s get out of this rain.’

    ‘The nineteenth hole’s not far from here. I’ll buy you a pint,’ responded the voice that must have belonged to Jim.

    The rabbit breathed a tentative sigh of relief. He knew the huntsmen would be back with the ferrets. But for now he was home free.
