True Blue

“If a little kid ever asks you just why the sky is blue, you look him or her right in the eye and say, 'It's because of quantum effects involving Rayleigh scattering combined with a lack of violet photon receptors in our retinae.'”
~Philip Plait

Another quote about the blue sky:

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.
~e. e. cummings

The Study in Blue is magnificent. Could definitely see it hanging on my wall. :-)

And since my favorite color is blue, I can love them all.
