A Study of the Transitions of Blue

The sky’s shade of blue is always transitioning; when there are clouds, the blue is mixed with white. When the skies clear, the blue is so solid and majestic. My favorite time to enjoy a solid blue sky is in the middle of winter when the blue is so deep it is the color of light blueberries. 
Another kind of blue I love is when water reflects the sky. Especially if there is a wind, the water has much more flecked and textured shade of blue. The blue is a mixture of light and dark depending on how the wind is blowing. 
On my run this morning, I get to see both kinds of blue: the textured blue of the water and the white and blue mixture of sky, and it is transferring a lot of peace to my heart. Have a great day!
