Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Teal or #Aqua

As usual, my favorite example of a natural Teal coloring is Diablo Lake in the North Cascades.  There is a beautiful overlook mini-park just east of the town of Newhalem, and Hubby and I go there a couple of times every year.  The unusual color of the water is caused by glacial runoff, and the water is always this beautiful color.


This one is from 2019.

BirdbathCurvesIn  my own back yard, we have a brilliant blue float on the surface of our birdbath, lending a pop of color, even when the yard is dull.

“Aqua” means water, doesn’t it?  This is the water seen in the harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The face of the Hubbard Glacier in Alaska is also a pretty shade of aqua.  And it really is that color.

And how’s this for Aqua?  I thought the surface of the swimming pool on our cruise ship looked like silk.

Back in 1996, when I toured Austria with my orchestra, we stayed in Vienna, and visited an underground mall, which had many brightly-colored elements.  The steps down to the mall had edge tiles of a brilliant blue glass.

And on the shelves of our local Asian grocery store, there is lots of eye-catching packaging.
