Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Blue

I do like these blue shutters:

Shutters and Shadows

Triggered by Tina’s (Travels and Trifles) comment about her Provençal blue hour sky being tinged with pink and violet, I thought of this evening sunset moving to blue hour photograph in Provence, many years ago:

Now for one many of you will have seen before…a blue early morning (blue hour) scene near Agios Nikolaus on Crete, early ’80s:

Early morning on Crete

Then we have blue as as predominant colour in a picture in a restaurant in Lanzarote

  1. Suzanne

    These are all lovely. I particularly like the misty and romantic view of Crete.

  2. Nice blues, Sue. Shutters always remind me of hot days in continental Europe.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Lovely series – and the Greek islands offers excellence in blue. Lyme Regis always conjures up that novel: “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”…

  4. Love your choices sue. They really demonstrate the many variations of blue. Partial to Provence tho😊. Really so beautiful there.

  5. These are all gorgeous blues, Sue. But Provence is my favorite. 😊

  6. I especially like that early morning photo! A scene I rarely see.

  7. The shutters win for me, they remind me of somewhere.

  8. Beautiful blues, Sue! 🙂 🙂 We were at a garden with an ancient, dilapidated summerhouse, of sorts, this afternoon. Blue, of course. Thought of you 🙂

  9. Lovely selection but I love the sky blue shutters, so tidy…

  10. Those shutters are so lovely!

  11. Wonderful gallery with some lovely blues 🙂
