I'll have to beg your indulgence for my blue photos, as these date back a few years. Whenever I hear mention of the Sea of Galilee, or Capernaum, as I did this morning in church, I always get a little nostalgic, thinking back to my trip to Israel in 2008. So I dug through my photos from the trip and came up with a few favorites. I think this week's challenge will show quite a variety of objects photographed against beautiful blue sky...

This first is my favorite view at Bet Shean, an archaeological site:

This is the sign at a restaurant where we ate near Cesarea Phillipi (quite blue--but note the Christmas tree!):

And lastly, looking out across the Sea of Galilee from the Mount of Beatitudes (this a wee bit dark, but it was taken with my Nikon Coolpix, before I had a digital SLR, and to the best of my knowledge it's not "photoshopped."):

Beautiful! I was in Israel many, many years ago (I was 16, and I'm a hella lot older than that now), and I remember how gorgeoous and blue the skies were.
Thank you! I live in the Pacific Northwest (U.S) and so it was quite novel to have such blue sky all the time! :-) I can still see everything silhouetted against the blue sky there. The only blue I remember that was more beautiful was the color of the Dead Sea...
These are beautiful... I particularly love the first one.
Thank you!
Nicely framed image at the top - such blue - lovely.
Very interesting photos. Thanks for sharing.
What interesting places of a place I've never been - I particularly like the arch in the first picture.
