This is a fascinating photo and would be great to use as a prompt for descriptive writing, involving: pathetic fallacy, mood, atmosphere and senses.

“The first thing that happened is I uploaded it and looked at it and called my girlfriend in. I think at that point we knew it was a really cool photo. It was something I had wanted to photograph the two years I had been here, but I didn’t really think anybody else would look at it.”

–Amateur San Francisco photographer Phil McGrew talks about his photo of a lightning strike that went viral.

You could ask pupils to begin by listing/finding words to describe the 5 sense and the mood/atmosphere.
Then, pupils have to imagine their story bginning here, in this scene. They write their opening… OR…pupils have to describe the scene to the reader (purely description, detatched from it).
