I found this feather on Monday morning. It lay below a lamp post, and when I looked up there was a seagull sitting on the top. So as it was still hot from its fall, I brought it home and played around with different shots with it, included the "everyone has done it before" water drop.
There are actually two drops on it, and in this position they look as if they are falling off - hence the title
Thanks for yesterday's comments and best wishes for Margaret.

The feather itself looks as though it's falling. Beautiful placement/composition. Very clever, this one.

This is really well done - the feather does look like it's falling in mid air. The refraction in the large drop is splendid!
