Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Purple.

Purple is a color created by mixing red and blue. So there is a range of purples, depending on how much red and how much blue you mix together.

And the entire range of purples can be seen simultaneously at sunrise or sunset, as the red tinge of the rising or setting sun infuses the blue of the sky…

All from our recent Long Island Kayak Circumnavigation.

    • Thanks so much, Shaanthz! Actually, it was a difficult choice between those landscapes and some purple crocus photos from the spring, purple crocuses being of course the absolute essence of purple…

      BTW, I just love your “Purple” post! We eat red cabbage all the time, and every time I cut into the raw cabbage I admire those convoluted purple patterns that you photographed so well… :-)

  39. Gorgeous skies… I love when the colors change too. Doesn’t happen much near me because of all the trees. I have to go to the river or find open spaces to watch the sky. :-)
