Shades of Blues Are Present Everywhere
The shades of blues in the sky change throughout the day and year. Depending on the sun and the cloudiness, rain, and even snow. Cloudless, the day appears clear and bright or overcast tinting the world with a greyish blue.
Surfaces tend to reflect light. Subsequently, the quality of light enhances surfaces and lets them appear vibrant or dulled by greyish-blues. In cities, this experience is magnified through glass-clad buildings that mirror the changing blues of the sky and subtly influence the mood of the day. The example shows a photo by Victor Jakovlev.
Along the coast, the sea takes on this role. The clearer the sky, the more we notice being energized by the color intensity while being soothed by softer shades of blues. Often moods turn melancholic when the blue turns to grey-blue shades.

Hues in mud-brown, moss-green, and grey-blue dominate the print. Here, a landscape in the Southern Alps unfolds. Cabbage trees break up the front of the mountainous scene. And the cascade follows a meandering stream that leads the viewer towards the snow-capped Southern Alps at the horizon.
