Welcome back to the Sunday Stills Monthly color challenge. Last October and November I thought it would be fun to share images based on a color theme. For January, “glacier” blue seems like a good choice.
If you have seen a glacier, there is a particular color of blue, almost turquoise, that is found within the compacted ice. Some reference glacier blue as a décor choice which is more of a grayish-blue. Think of icebergs floating in cold arctic waters.
In this image I borrowed from Unsplash, you can get the idea of the colors.
Perhaps you are lucky enough to have pictures of a glacier or icebergs in your archives. Once again, we are going for the color, not necessarily an actual image of a glacier.
Let’s take a look at some ideas of the colors from my perspective.
Staring right at me while composing this post was a bottle of water. I shot this macro to show more of the glacier blue color. Coincidentally, the brand shows a glacier-like image.
At a neighbor’s Christmastime wedding two years ago, I photographed their lovely decorations.
I had this image of blue flowers, known as lithodora, in my archives, from a neighbor’s home in Sacramento. Did you know that blue is the rarest flower color? Various shades of blue are seen on only 10 percent of the 280,000 flowering plants on Earth.

House Update Uplift
I know it’s a stretch but my house color exterior is grayish-blue. It’s a good excuse to share an update. In this photograph, the house was set onto the foundation and put together on January 4. Our spirits were “uplifted” to be able to walk around inside, even though a lot still has to be done before we can move in. We selected this house purely by floor plan and online photos, so we are pleased with the roominess and layout.
As soon as temporary power is available, the contractor will continue work on the outside of the property. Simultaneously, the home construction crew can finish the interior, which still may take up to 4-6 more weeks. We are pleased with the progress so far, and marvel at the work being done even under these cold conditions.
This section is partially inspired by Becky B’s SquaresUp challenge.
I am looking forward to your interpretation of this week’s color challenge. Next week the theme is fog and clouds.
Join me Monday for my review of Jacqui Murray’s book, Against All Odds.
