PICTURE THIS #187 - HUES OF BLUE by Marianne

Apologies for lateness or tardiness yet again ........... had computer trouble , do not ask............!

wonderful theme, Danette, thank you for hosting. Of course , the worst is having to choose. I choose images from what I call my Blue Day in Cape Town. Everything I shot that day, was in hues of blue. The light was so sharp  that cold winter day. I shot with my old Sanyo as the man had forgotten the other camera and the binoculars of all things at home on our surprise visit that June day.

The trouble was to narrow it down to 3 ..... *smile*


 Table Mountain in Blue


Hues of blue - Table Mountain


Blue Penguins at Boulder Beach.

  3. Hi Marianne!! No, I'm not still snickering behind my hand about your .....ahem.....computer problems :-))

    Lovely three shots for the theme!! Gorgeous shot of the distant Table Mountain in the first photo. Love those funny little penguins in the second one. Great shot of 'Just Nuisance' in the last shot. It seems familiar...did you do a post about him some time ago?

    1. you may stop sniggering, it was a very serious problem, ahem, was off line all weekend. *smile*

      We spend 3 hours by the penguins, if I had my Canon, my photos would have been better, they are amazing and their behaviour is just like "Happy Feet" , they are unbelievable lovely. I observed their family life with mom and dad and chicks, the homecoming of the fishers for the day and the way they greeted each other. Should maybe do a blog??

      and yes, Just Nuisance was a blog on Multiply, you do remember correctly. I was honouring our sailors during the 1st and 2nd world war. Probably on Poppy Day or something.

      Thank you Mitch.

  11. Lovely landscape in blue!

    I love the shot of the penquins. How blessed you are to be able to see them in their natural state and not behind a piece of glass in a zoo!

    There must be a great story behind that sculpture. Love the blues in the background.
