Believe me, I was really flattered when I received a direct invitation to contribute one of my photos! Blue? Oh yes, I have lots of photos that fall within that category. This one I call "Blue Birches" is what I chose to submit to the gallery today and which will be in the show a week from Saturday.
Before I settled on "Blue Birches,"though, I had a wonderful time going through my photo files to find ones that might fit the "blue" category, enjoying not only the photographs but also the memories of so many beautiful places I have been and sights I have seen. Since I had all these photos gathered together, it was easy to post them here on my blog and share them with all my readers. Perhaps you might enjoy revisiting them, too. (They are even more enjoyable if you click to enlarge them!)
October dawn on Elk Lake in the Adirondacks

Departing storm clouds over Pyramid Lake in the Adirondacks
A campfire glows on the shore of Pyramid Lake. I hear the loons' haunting calls every time I look at this photo.
Dawn mist rises from Pyramid Lake in October
A brilliant Venus shines from both the sky and the water at Pyramid Lake.
Narrow-leaved Gentians glow like Japanese lanterns when lit by the sun.
No flower on earth is bluer than the beautiful Fringed Gentian.
The Chicory flower is certainly blue, while the iridescent wings of this tiny hoverfly contain all the colors of the rainbow.
