Many weeks ago I found this feather somewhere (although I now can??t remember where!) and put it away safely, ready to be a photo subject on a rainy day. Today was just such a day ?? I spent it catching up on odd jobs around the house and by the time I thought about my daily photo it was raining outside. I had a bit of a battle as I shot this as the sun kept peeping out from behind the clouds, ruining my careful exposures. Ultimately I ended up with a piece of music propped up on the windowsill to block out the harsh sunlight and used a couple of reflectors to make the shadows beneath the feather less obvious. It must have looked an awfully Heath Robinson set up to anyone walking by but I got the result I was after eventually!
