Shades of Blue


Gulf of Mexico from Mustang Island, Port Aransas, Texas August 2019

The shallow water along the Texas Gulf Coast is typically brownish from all the disturbed sediment. Occasionally, the conditions are just right and the water sparkles in inviting shades of blue. Time to dust off your thesaurus, these are the colors I see: turquoise, cerulean, azure, beryl, aquamarine, teal, aqua, and cyan. Did I miss any?
