Turquoise Around The World

I just love the color turquoise which is a combination of green and blue and takes its name from the turquoise gem. I don’t have a favorite color but this one is definitely a contender.

I love that peaceful characteristic that comes from green and blue and together become a bright and cheerful color. I have captured the color turquoise around the world from Mexican waters to Indian walls but none in Turkey which is where the color name comes from as the gem was originally imported from Turkey, and turquoise is French for Turkish.

  1. Turquesa is my absolute favourite colour. I loved the first pic with the dolphin, the cat lazing in front of the fence and the Viennese dome. I remember when I went to Sedona, Arizona, there was a lot of the contrasting colours of ‘terracotta’ and ‘turquoise’. Great colour to feature 🙂

  2. I love the colour turquoise too – my favourite turquoise thing has to be the sea though. A gorgeous clear turquoise water against a white sandy beach. Blissful! Great photos 🙂

  3. The turquoise sari was my favorite. It’s almost like she dressed for the environment. It’s always shocking to see vibrant turquoise in public, no matter how many times you see it.
