#SundayStills ~ Monthly Colour Challenge #Cobalt Blue in Nature #Photography

Welcome to the Sunday Stills Monthy Colour Challenge, hosted by Terry Webster Schrandt.


This month’s colour is Cobalt, described as ‘a cool color with a connection to nature, sky, and water’ so I’m starting with water. On the left is a lake in North Wales, on the right a view of Kielder Water, a large man made reservoir in Northumberland.


Taking the above photo as the sun was setting gave a nice contrast between the sky and clouds and left the hills and turrets of Conwy castle in darkness.

Lovely blues in the plant kingdom, a hydrangea flower head and a hedgerow flower, I’m not sure what it is.

A setting moon in the morning and my grandson getting ready to vanquish any marauders we might encounter in Conwy castle.

A beautiful colour on the magpie’s wings


And given the time of year these are some of the Christmas lights along the trail at Bolesworth castle last year.

  1. Cathy, I always marvel at how our minds think quite alike with the images we select for our Sunday Stills posts. Cobalt blue is indeed a “cool” color and seems prevalent in nature as you show us today. Love the hint of blue on the magpie–I forget that their wings sport a bit of blue in the right light.

  2. Your photos are beautiful, Cathy. True blue! I love Wendy’s comment about your grandson. That is a darling picture – probably your favorite. 🙂 I loved how blue the reservoir is. 🙂

  3. Cathy, you chose beautiful photos for the challenge. Your cute little tike in an adorable blue coat is so sweet. If I’m not mistaken, the tiny blue flowers are Forget-Me-Nots. 💙💙💙 Nice job, thank you too for stopping by to see my photos. I’m glad you enjoyed the bird photo too!
