blue on that unique day of the year

January 18, 2011

At last, some brightness and clear blue skies . . . the best present after days of rain!

 . . .  looking upwards and wondering who is flying in, or out . . .

 . . . soft wisps of clouds contrast the angularity of the roofscape . . .

 . . and on the beach, silhouettes against the light and small blue bits of detritus on the pebbles.

Ducks flying low over the sea . . .  just a calming visual essay in blue  as the light changes . . . .

And at Plenty, close-ups and the view from inside to out.

No, I’m not blue just thoughtfully looking outwards and upwards!

A slash of Blue—
A sweep of Gray—
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky—
A little purple—slipped between—
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on—
A Wave of Gold—
A Bank of Day—
This just makes out the Morning Sky. Emily Dickinson    A Slash of Blue

    The sky has been grey here for weeks, so your blue sky pictures were such good medicine!

    Absolutely – what a difference some sun and warm light makes. The pebble photos are easy to take here . . . acres of the stuff but always a different matrix of shapes and tones.

  5. […] . . this day last year was sunny and looking at last years post, I can see that I went for a stroll. No such luck today so […]
