Have you noticed how much Beautiful Blue is used for the 2010 Winter Olympics?

Take a look at the logo.




Isn't this sky stunning?



Gaze at the beautiful setting of Vancouver.




I have to tuck in a picture of twice-gold medal winning champion, Shaun White. Notice, please, the color he's hanging onto.

Vancouver really has been beautiful to behold through these Olympics. Great blues!!

Rinkly Rimes said...

Plenty of blue skies where it's cold and plenty more where it's HOT (Australia). Your shots were not only blue, they were refreshing!

Cindy said...

Crisp and beautiful blue! I also love the pic of Shawn White. When I watch him in the competition, I am mesmerized by the height of his jumps.

Hi Sally

Thank you
Judi

Sally sorry but I posted twice. I thought it might not have worked since I didn't have your link up... guess it just took some time. I have your link up on the page but still need to figure out how to get it on the sidebar. Later... Must go to work! Thanks

Eli said...

Love your Monday blues. The Winter Olympics is such a wonderfully colourful event isn't it and they are so lucky to have so much blue sky as a backdrop. Rhondi pointed me at your Blue Monday post as I'd just had a blue day myself here in the UK. Eli

Riet said...

Great post about Vancouver Sally. I love the olympics

Caught a little last night of the pair skating and Apollo's interview. Such a nice guy.
Also watched the American flag going up for that handsome skier and his proud parents. Happy moments!
