Blue Makes Me Happy – Sea, Sky and Other Blue Things (Weekly photo challenge)

06 Oct

1 This morning the sea on the horizon as seen from our bedroom was a really deep blue.

2 Driving to Truro, this beautiful sky opened up as we turned a corner.

3 Such a bright and beautiful blue sky with the spires of Truro Cathedral lit up by the sun – just lovely.

I’m trying out the new gallery format here. What do you think? Somehow all the photos are below as well so you have a good comparison!

    I love the shot of the bluebells by the beach….just lovely!

    If you get some time this week I’d love if you’d participate in our new weekly photo challenge too!

    Speaking as a soggy Scottish pachyderm, blue sky good. Very good. And fortunately Elephants have very long memories.

      We need good memories down here in Cornwall too! The blue skies have been unfrequent this summer.
      All the best to you 🙂

    I LOVE blue and what a wonderful variety of blue in your world. What a little cutey (blue pjs), love the flowers and that little outfit…did you make it?!

      Thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, I did make the little outfit! I do love creating little things! It’s getting harder now as the Grandbabies keep growing. The hoodies I’m on at the moment have taken ages! 🙂

    Love the gallery format. That sky is beautiful, so unusual. Looks like the Red Arrows have been around, and the sea; well anything of the sea just moves me. Reminds me a little of the Isle of Wight.

      I like this gallery format too but you do have to have enough photos which takes more time and I don’t always have enough time! 🙂

    I also love blue – especially sky. You’re amazing in your commitment to finding three beautiful things every single day!! Must be a bit of a scramble some days….

      Some days it is! Mr S is very good about reminding me of stuff or of inspiring me on days when I need it but in some ways it has become easier since I started as I’ve become so much more attuned to what’s all around me.
      Glad you love blue too. There’s nothing quite like the blue of a lovely cloudless sky on a bright cold day! 🙂

    I love all of the shades of blue – did you knit the little blue outfit, too?

      I did! It’s one of my favourite productions. 🙂

    So much blue! It’s such a lovely color!

    I like the gallery format! I was just reading how to do that, but haven’t tried it yet.

      Thank you. It’s worth trying the gallery but you do need to have several photos and you can’t choose which ones to have big. It does look good though and is a great improvement on the old gallery setting. Do give it a go. 🙂

    What a ravishing blue outfit with its little frill… made with much love, I suspect…
    Love all the blues, we had an American weather forecaster with much character on TV, who used to promise us a ‘ blue dome day’ !

      Indeed – all the little outfits are made with a ton of love – otherwise I wouldn’t have the patience!
      A “blue dome day’ sounds perfect. 🙂

    What a blue post! Well, beautifully blue, actually 🙂 (especially Little Boy in Blue PJs)
