Blue - my favorite colour. Dusk falls on the Sleat Peninsula.
Blue - One of my favorite songs
Blue songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there're so many sinking now
You've got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs lots of laughs
Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go
Well I don't think so
But I'm gonna take a look around it though
Blue I love you
Blue here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
© 1970; Joni Mitchell

What a fascinating blue!!!I love blue, and this one is quite special, the presence of the white boat gives a good balance to the picture and add even more interest to it. Thanks Rosemary!

This one is a cracker. Incredible deep and glorious shades and tones of blue with fantastic reflections of distant mountains and hills silhouetted against the evening sky. And one tiny brightly lit boat sitting perfectly in the frame. Even the lighting on the boat itself is wonderful: bright on top but with a warm glow on its bows.
This just has to be added to my favourites!

Le titre convient à merveille à l'image, mais ce qui prend la vedette, c'est cette embarcation qui capte la dernière lumière de la journée.

you title is quite right: blue is the dominant color of your capture, but blue is specially the nocturne and fairy atmosphere of your photo. Quietful attractive landscape. TFS

BEautiful photo Rosemary. I love how the boat stands out in all this blue. It almost looks as if you'd put a flash at the bottom of it! And a +1 for 'Blue' as well...great Joni Mitchell song!
jjcordier (73312) 2012-04-02 13:18
La composition est excellente, la palette de couleurs bleues superbe et ce bateau blanc et son reflet qui attirent irrésistiblement le regard est la cerise sur le gâteau. Très bonne photo.

nice composition with the lonely boat at blue hour and the beautiful BG, a nice and very sharp image with bluish tone, lovely light management.
good and beautiful work my friend.
RhodieIke (11512) 2012-04-02 22:02
Morning Rosemary, Wonderful image of this lone boat in the Blue hour, fantastic how you have captured it with the light catching the boat and the surrounds in a gorgeous blue. Excellent PP,well managed, Cheers Iain.
brianmcc (6005) 2012-04-02 22:53
the blues in your picture are wonderful. the boat is perfectlypositioned and its light colour make it jump out of the picture at the viewer. a lovely minimalist composition.
ChrisJ (94802) 2012-04-02 22:59
Love the predominant dark blue color here & the superb reflections. The solitary boat makes a good focal point. Good symmetry & well composed using the rule of thirds with the skyline horizon perfectly positioned on the 1/3 horizontal axis. Tfs!

Great Blue hour shot with the amazing contrasting white boat against a wonderful blue sea and sky. The reflections of the boat and BG on the water is superb.
Good job TFS and I love the words to that song.

irresistable blue - well you know how much I like this colour and this is so stunning! Breathtaking execution and an imaginative and beautiful presentation. Exquisite!
Regards - Brian.
Love Joni's song too!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-04-03 6:09
The boat is very visible, in the middle of deep blue is the best effect. It is well positioned in the composition. Excellent quality. Bravo.
have a nice day

while some cld easily say it is a little bit dark, this entirely gives the right shades.
it also reminds me the colors of northern part of beautiful british columbia.
Cricri (101397) 2012-04-05 11:50
une chanson qui accompagne magnifiquement cette image très apaisante, calme, reposante, agréable a regarder, belle lumière sur le bateau qui ajoute un plus et un joli contraste avec le bleu, très belle réalisation
dkmurphys (46292) 2012-04-06 4:45
Wonderful solitude scene. A splendid atmosphere in great colors. Well taken!
Royaldevon (26617) 2012-04-06 12:23
This is just so beautiful.
It is tranquil, romantic, full of depth.
The focal boat is strongly placed, whilst the lake's edge follows the thirds line.
I really am lost for words to describe the impression; it's more of an emotion.
Have a lovely Easter w/e,
corjan3 (2025) 2012-04-09 3:49
What a beautiful image...beauty in simplicity...and I have only discovered it now! I really have no suggestions for improvement. It is perfect for me...beautifully blue in wonderful tranquility with the boat in the FG having been left there just for you. Fabulous!
bayno (18342) 2012-04-14 10:12

des lumières très difficiles professionnellement capturées. Cette barque attrape vraiment le regard.
Un festival de bleus froids mais agréables.
