We’re slowly approaching the end of this fabulous 120 days of Crayola challenge!
Today’s colour is wild blue yonder.
According to the brilliant Wikipedia, wild blue yonder may refer to:
The U.S. Air Force, the official song of the United States Air Force, often referred to as “Wild Blue Yonder”
Wild Blue Yonder, a 1951 film
The Wild Blue Yonder, a 2005 film by Werner Herzog
A 1998 album by Flat Duo Jets
A 1984 single by Screaming Blue Messiahs, from their Gun Shy LP.
A 2006 single by Paul Weller
… and also a Crayola colour.
This seems to be a mauve-blue colour, and reminds me of a summer sky. Here’s some of my photos to represent wild blue yonder….
I like the different shades of blue and grey, in this photo, with the red sail making a contrast.
Not a good photo, taken with an old style phone. But the sky is very wild blue yonder, I think, maybe too blue?
The sky in the photo above is actually quite a mauve colour. Taken early in the morning.
And finally, the sea in this photo is very ‘wild blue yonder’. I took this from the monastery at Patmos, high above the sea. I zoomed in a lot for this photo, and was pleased with the detail it shows.
