Blue on Blue

The blue hour is best in deep winter and with snow to really soak up that blue.  This year we have no snow but here is an example from last year. The blue hour will be celebrated here this week.

 

If you know Joni Mitchell's Blue album, songs from it too will magically appear here.

That's a mighty fine image, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Very foreign from this year with not a drop of snow on the ground.
Blue on blue...
Mary MacADNski: Then there's that, Bobby Vinton.
I love the smoothness of the snow. And, of course that lovely blue
Mary MacADNski: It was certainly windswept to create that drift.

Very blue isn't it
Mary MacADNski: So many depth pass through about a twenty minute period.

It fits the theme.

We saw a few snowflakes yesterday but 50 miles to the east there is a quite a covering apparently. We are expecting a dusting later in the week. Even in the city today it is -4.5 deg which is very unusual.
Mary MacADNski: This shot was last year and this year, we do not have a drop of snow.

Lovely photograph Mary, sumptuous in its blueness, and an appropriate song by a great singer.
Mary MacADNski: One of my favorite albums for the memories it brings. Old 8 track tapes and the VW camping van as newlyweds, driving for 5 day vacations on PEI.
No snow, is this unusual for you, I imagined you had loads each year.
Mary MacADNski: We normally do but this year is different. We have had similar winters in the 90's though. Every snowfall but one has ended in rain so there is no accumulation at all.
This is a really fine image Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I am knocking on wood but we have had no big storms this year. Last year's storm results can be seen by tomorrow.

Reminds me how my mother used to put blue into her white wash, Mary
Mary MacADNski: I remember bluing too and used it way back when.

We woke up to a covering of snow this morning, nothing like this though!
Mary MacADNski: This was last year, a normal snow year for the most part.
Lovely shot, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Tom.
That looks so cold!

Never been into joni Mitchell
Mary MacADNski: It is a cold blur, even on warm days. No worries about Joni. Everyone's musical tastes are their own and different from others.

I like this composition.
Mary MacADNski: Taken through the bathroom window. smile
blue hour, always difficult shots. especially with the digital for what concerns me, this note is expected to drink from us, who does not try
Mary MacADNski: I find them easy enough to take - it is to get outside. I prefer my pajamas at this hour. This is taken from indoors.
Inspired...
Mary MacADNski: Do you like Joni?
