Sam’s Ses Challenge #17: Blue

Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I pick a word or phrase as the theme for the week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge.  Don’t know who the Ses are?… click here to find out.

Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Visit the main Sam’s Ses Challenge page to learn more.

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be certain Sam and I get to see it.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Blue.

Here’s my contribution:

The sky was blue, the water was blue, but I was far from blue the day I visited Crater Lake. In fact it was a real Bucket List moment for me.

The conditions couldn’t have been more perfect. The crater rim was still edged with snow and there was barely a cloud in the sky, creating the most amazing reflections on the surface of the lake.

How could anyone be blue in a place like this?

To read more about my visit to Crater Lake, stop by my post Crater Lake, Oregon’s Sapphire. In the meantime, here are a few teaser photos…

  1. what a wonderful reflection.. They’re awesome..

  2. Beautiful pictures of Crater Lake. I have been to Oregon several times, but I have never made it there–now I know I have been missing out!

  4. I love Crater Lake! That’s local for us 🙂 Funny… we even just wrote about it on our travel blog:

    I should check out your challenge.. it’s likely I already have pics that would fit 🙂

    I knew I could rely on Jamie and Gryff to join in! Their ‘Blue’ was of course the Toronto Blue Jays!

I'd love to hear what you've got to say!
