Shades of blue

The shades of blue in sea and sky always catch my attention and the boardwalk in Summerside is a perfect place to see them. While I appreciate a clear blue sky, the hues of blue cloud which often precede rain are captivating. Add in the sea and I am in blue heaven.





Sea ice adds another element to the blues.





The colours along the shoreline provide some contrast, while sometimes the ice in the harbour is all that distinguishes sea from sky.





A sky in hues of blue is reflected in a small section of open water in the harbour. It doesn’t take much water to make a perfect scene.





This favourite bench is a perfect place for the blues.





Then, on occasion when you only have a cell phone as a camera, fog beyond the harbour, the dark blue patches of sea between the surface ice and a storm-blue sky stop you in your tracks.

Beautiful views, Marie. I've never seen anything else except beauty from your area. Enjoy your day.

To answer your question about the no parking sign, I don't know if that spot was reserved for that driver. Now when I walk past there, I'll have to look and see who parks there. :)

Oh wow...that looks really COLD. I love to look at the sky and the ocean and pic out the different colors. Being a painter I will name off the colors that I see.

I love blues too, so many shades, and so many ways to connect them. But blue can be a very cold colour, as shown in your icy photos. brrrr.

I really like those big open landscapes - not everything needs to be busy.

Sorry for rather long silence, things have been a bit crazy here.
