The colour blue for the Weekly Photo Challenge

I love the colour blue. There are so many beautiful shades, and here are a few pics to demonstrate this, for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

Firstly, here is the beautiful blue sky at Ellery Lake, at 9358 feet, near Tioga Pass in Yosemite National Park.

Just look at this gorgeous azure sea in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic. I was mesmerised by it’s beauty.


Her we were in the Blue Grotto, “La Grotta Azzurra” on the Italian island of Capri. In order to get into this grotto, we had to climb aboard a small rowing boat, with a capacity for two, maximum three passengers and, lying on the bottom of the boat, we were able enter the low and narrow mouth of the cave. It was such a magical experience.


Lastly, here is the blue orchid that hubby bought me for our wedding anniversary last year in December.

I hope you enjoyed my pics. Why not enter some of your own, so that we can all see them?

  1. Nice selection of blues – here in the UK we get a wide range of shades of blue in the sky (when it isn’t raining) πŸ™‚

  2. Hmmm. Don’t think I have the presevcerance to go through all my photo’s to find a few good blue ones πŸ˜‰
    Suppose I could always look to “other sources” of blueness πŸ˜‰
    Lovely pics AD – especially that Blue Grotto – do they have lights under the water? Or is it naturally that blue?

    • The blue coloring of the Grotta Azzurra is created by the daylight which enters via an underwater opening located immediately below the entrance to the cave.
      The light is filtered by the water which absorbs the red tones, leaving only the blue ones to pass into the cave.

  3. When my Gran saw something nice she would say it looked spiffy. Your pics are spiffy πŸ™‚

  4. The various shades of blue are my favorite colors. Nice πŸ˜€
