One Word Sunday:Stark

In a comment to Debbie, I suggested I might do two images for this word…

Firstly, stark as desolate, austere:

Decaying buildings of the Cwmystwyth mine

and secondly, stark as sharply delineated

  1. They both work, Sue, though I might describe the top image as ‘bleak’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The photos are a great way to visually explain the two meanings of stark, Sue.

  3. I do very much like the colours in the top photo of the mine. Quite restful.

  4. Stark or bleak…. slate mining was a tough job and I guess little comfort for the workers who probably thought the surroundings even bleaker (particularly in the winter) The first image typifies the moody location well 🙂

  5. I thought that first one must be N Wales, and then got confirmation in a comment. Stark for sure and austere.

  6. Nicely done, Sue!

  7. I love your two starks Sue. Great desolation from the desolate expert, and I love the silhouette
