Mixed Messages – White on Blue

Mixed Messages - White on Blue

As I stare through my front window at the endless onslaught of snow, I see the blue of shadows cast through the illuminated whiteness. These colors convey a frigid message as I sit in the warmth of my home. Yesterday, those same colors conveyed a different message, one of warmth, as I sat in my cockpit at 39,000 feet where the temperature was -45 degrees Celsius. The sands along the north bank of Grand Bahama island look warm and inviting as the white reflects light from just below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. That reflected light tempers the deep blue of the ocean with a warm turquoise hue. Two colors, two contexts, two messages…both beautiful.
