Lens-Artist Challenge – Blue

For this week’s challenge, Patti has asked us to share out interpretation of blue – whether it’s the time of day, the color or the mood.

Blue Sky

The beach is different every day.  The sky can be any color imaginable.  The surf can quietly lay down or thunder as the waves hit the beach.  Sometimes the air is so still and oppressive that it’s unbearable without the shade of an umbrella and sometimes the wind blows so hard that the grains of sand pellet you mercilessly.   So there’s always a sense of anticipation as you walk through the access to see the mood of the beach that day. 

Blue Sunset

The most vivid colors of the sky are at sunrise and sunset.  I’m not a morning person at all so sunrise photos are a rarity for me.  This photo was taken at Huntington Beach State Park.  I had gone there to get photos of the birds coming home to roost and stayed to watch the last traces of the sun. 

Blue Beach

This last photo is my latest Photoshop effort.  I would play with it 24/7 if I could.  It’s definitely blue!

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Buttons

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week and you can find her here: https://musingsofafrequentflyingscientist.com/2017/08/05/five-minutes-with-a-ranunculus-regularrandom/

The rules are to pick a subject and spend five minutes with it using different lighting, views and angles, etc.

I bought these cute buttons for a project a couple of years ago and came across them the other day and thought it would be a colorful entry.

A Back Porch Light Show

One of my homework assignments last year was to take a night photo.  This photo was one of my submissions.  Hubby helped me attach glow sticks to the fan on our back porch and this was the colorful result.
