Swinging through time and space (almost the theme!)

I must admit to cheating a little for today??s ??swing?? theme ?? my subject is one I??ve used before and it??s not really swinging. However, my free time is very limited on a Wednesday and by the time I had the chance to find anything else that swings it was well and truly dark outside so that??s my excuse and I??m sticking to it!

I found this feather when I visited the Wildfowl and Wetland Centre in Arundel last year and it??s been in my ??bits and pieces?? tin ever since ready for just such occasions. I did try to capture it swinging but I couldn??t quite find the right shutter speed in the time available which gave a sense of movement without completely blurring the feather. Perhaps I??ll experiment with that another time…..

      Helen, your images are always so uncomplicated, well-taken, and perfectly presented! This shot is simply brilliant - wonderful details and great clarity.

      Maybe it isn't completely in the theme, but I find that its shape, its colored lines give all the same a good idea of the swing !
      A moment of timeless swinging
