This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge definitely saw an explosion of fantastic blue-themed images from many of you! It was also wonderful to see a significant number of first-time participation, letting me know that Blue is a great color!
What caught my eye in looking at the variety of photography that was showcased this week, is that the blues ranged from extremely intense to muted and very understated. A truly beautiful range of expressions of a single color!
For your entertainment, another of my varied blue images..
From my short trip to Iceland, the lighter blues of the geothermal pool made for an almost subtropical feel in this image at the arctic circle.
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
- Marisa, The Girl That Dreams Awake provided beautiful blues ranging from sky to door.
- Georgie, whose blog Third Time Lucky! is a lot of fun to read, showed off some of the gorgeous blue of Greece and the sea!
- Snips & Snaps from a Southampton Old Lady featured a fantastic array of blue wood from the English coast.
- Emily’s, in her blog Zombie Flamingos took us on a morning walk to discover some blue hues.
- Sunshine, in the Daily Blabber, showed us a beautiful Japanese Magnolia against a blue sky!
- James, of the James McEwan blog, where fiction illuminates truth, combined a poem with a lovely photo for this challenge.
- Mack, in the really beautiful blog mackmarie, showed us the beautiful Bora Bora blues in her post about her honeymoon location.

I have somewhat of a twisted (appropriately) topic in mind for the next challenge…
