The Feather


While walking our puppy, I found this feather.
It had drifted into our yard, by the lake,
nestling itself against delicate greenery.

I marveled at its intricate detail and beauty -
a gift for a photographer.


Today, I'm also contributing to Kim Klassen's, The Inspiration Studio.
I hope you can join me there as I share images of my favorite things.
Kim has made some exciting new changes to the iStudio site.
I think you will love this space!

Wishing you a happy and creative week.

  2. It's beautiful indeed! A few things has happened. Firstly, the feather is soft and beautiful and chose to fall on an amazing background and caught the eye of an artist. We could have easily missed this beauty.

  4. The second image takes my breath away. Just look at the wispiness of that delicate feather. To think, that plume layered with others and sewn onto a beautiful bird helps enable that creature to fly.

  5. Both images are stunning. I love the first one for duo of textures. The second is so gentle and calming. I could see it as a canvas above a bed.
