This was a last minute entry. I wasn't the least bit inspired to shoot anything for water, but felt the 'need' to do it anyway. In the end, I'm glad I did cause I really...really like this image.

I took my poor kitty's toy apart for the feathers - however, I paid dearly halfway through when he decided he wanted them back and started stealing them from me. I managed to hold on to a couple and just kept shooting and spraying water on them until they were completely soaked and useless.

Thanks for all the votes and comments! It was a very fun week!!

Nope - just water.

Very pretty, I just love the softness of it and the caramel colour. Pretty enough to eat! LOL

I'm sure this will finish high. I love the soft tones and focus with sprigs of feather texture popping all around. That's a beautiful bead of water there too. Good luck!
