Day 228 – Rainbow Blue

The blues

The blues

After the issues with greens yesterday I wasn’t about to get too confident about the blues today but things worked out well, I think : )

Cattails and wheat

After the color explosion of the last two weeks, and especially yesterday, this looks downright quiet : )
