Beautiful Photographs Focusing on the Color Blue

Blue is a color that has multiple meanings depending upon your culture or life experience. For some, it’s associated with feeling down or depressed, while others see blue as a calming color, associated with oceans or skies, blue can also be associated with nature. Blue is also often seen as a color that inspires confidence, unity, trust, and even intelligence. In many cultures, blue is considered a very spiritual color.

Just as with any color, context is important when using the color blue and the meaning it portrays. For instance, a company could use different shades of blue in a design for postcard printing to convey to recipients that their company can be trusted. A website may use blue in conjunction with orange and red colors to add some coolness to the design.

The following roundup of blue images show just how much context matters with the color blue. Notice how in some images the color blue, even just a focused spot of this color, can “cool” the overall tone. In others, blue brightens and draws the viewer into another, far off place. In others, the overall use of the color blue adds a depressing dimension to the image.
