Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

Outside the Hapsburg Palace in Vienna, I was struck by the quality of light against a cloudless blue sky.

  1. I love the glow around the angel… its a beautiful picture.

    • Thanks, Maggie. I appreciate your stopping by!

  2. Hi,
    A very nice photo. :)

  3. A beautiful shot Naomi! Love it.

    • Thank you, Madhu. Every time you post, I have to add a new destination to my list!

      • :-) Turkey should be right on top!

      • Neither my son nor I have been there–he’s graduating this month, and will have time before he returns to Argentina. We have tossed around the idea of going there before he leaves. It’s between that and Eastern Europe. What would you recommend if you have a couple of weeks?

      • (Not able to reply below for some reason)
        I haven’t been to Eastern Europe – on the cards for 2013 – but Turkey is my favourite of all the places I have visited. If you do go leave enough time for Istanbul, at least four days. I could wax eloquent about it for hours :-)

      • What is the best time of year to go to Turkey? I will be asking you for recommendations! When you go to Eastern Europe, make sure you go to Prague. It is eye candy, with a rich and fascinating history.

      • We went in early October and it was lovely. I could email some links to you if you want.

      • Hi Madhu, there isn’t a great hurry, but I would really love your suggestions and links to any places Turkey that you might recommend to a couple of art loving history geeks.

  4. Beautiful composition! Love it!

  5. How amazing is the glow around the angel. It had to be captured and you did it well. It’s now an impressive memory, I’m sure.

    • HI Tess, you’re right about that. Vienna was in the midst of a terrible heat wave, and it was my son’s birthday. We took him into a fancy grocery store and let the kids choose whatever they wanted for a picnic. It was while we sat on the lawn that I looked up from our spot of shade, and saw the angel. Thank you so much for your sweet comments, and taking the time to share your thoughts. Warmly, Naomi

  6. I lived in Vienna for about 6 months. This brings back such lovely memories. Wonderful photo.

    • Thank you, Sabrina. Were you studying abroad?

      • Yes, I did my junior semester there. I still have strong memories of it, even though I’ve forgotten a lot of the rest of my college experience.

  7. The statue looks so alive.

    • Dear Miss Emm, it almost took on a life of its own. I could almost have believed it was generating that halo! Thank you so much for stopping by.

  8. Stunning! VERY blue, and a beautiful light blue, and then those open wings, that image of hope. A gorgeous capture.

    Noeleen,

    • Thank you. What a beautiful description and interpretation. I am so glad you came to visit.

  9. Beautiful composition, Naomi.

  10. What’s the angel holding, do you know? There’s a story in that photo…
    It’s a lovely image. Thanks for sharing it.

    • Hi Kathy, I’m not sure what this angel is holding, but I’d like to know. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  11. Breathtaking light effects. Like an angel descended on top of the roof. Stunning . Thanks you…

  12. I meant, thank you. Wonderful post!

  13. The angel has a halo!
    Unusual for angels —
