Each week on Wordless Wednesday, bloggers around the world post a photo they’ve taken that tells a story. If my photo brings to mind a memory or inspires your creative writing, I hope you’ll share a comment below.

Scroll through more of my photos here.

And check out these Wordless Wednesday contributions from some of my (not typically wordless) writer friends.

  1. Cheryl Andrews says:

    This handsome coyote is looking right at you, Allyson! Great shot and
    how stunning to see that his eyes match the colour of his coat.

  2. Yes, it was very kind of this guy to pose for you so amiably. And it was a cool moment when I clicked on and first saw just the rocky background, the moment of wondering what lurked below. A bit scary. He’s large. And rather more golden in hue and more well fed looking that the fellow who makes a circuit through our orchard almost every day, having no problem whatsoever in getting through the deer fence. Where was this taken? Great shot.

  3. Isn’t it amazing what nature does, Allyson? The coyote blends beautifully into the background and still manages to let you know that this is his/her territory. I love those soft gold, sagey colours.

    The tones are beautiful here. You could take this shot to a designer and say “do my living room like this, please…”

    The coyote has a hypnotic quality about him; could just stare back into those eyes for quite a while. (Looking forward to the where and when and other details.)

  5. Mary says:

    What? You were calm enough to take a photo with a coyote looking directly at you? What was Chris doing?

  6. Elizabeth Yeoman says:

    I was wondering the same thing as Mary. I think I would have been frightened. Also (since it’s only an image) marvelling about how his coat so perfectly mimics the shades of pale sage and caramel in the background. But then I wonder – do they really or is it just a visual effect of the juxtaposition?
