Z is for Zaffre

From Nightjar,

Z is for Zaffre


A deep blue pigment obtained from cobalt ore. I thought these Lithodora prostrata flowers were close enough.

It’s obvious that Nightjar put a lot of time and thought into this project and I thank her so much for sharing it with all of us. The series has been full of surprises and gorgeous photography and along the way I learned a few new colors and fell in love with a jet black cat, who is my final choice for favourite – B is for Black Mia with the soft green eyes.

    Another gorgeous picture, thank you Nightjar!

    I like the blues and purples best, as always, but couldn’t pick a favourite.

    Another new colour! Thank you for the series, Nightjar! It’s been lovely, so many shades of blues and reds and blues and reds together.

    Thank you, Nightjar! So many lovely shades on various textures. I love the velvety petals of the forget-me-not family flower.

    Thanks to everyone who viewed and commented on the photos, it was a pleasure to share them with you all!

    voyager, thank you so much for hosting this! And I’m not sure if I should pass on to Mia that she was your favourite, it’s not like she needs any more reasons to feel superior to everyone and everything… :D

    Nightjar, thank you so very much for making this series for us to enjoy. All the pictures were really superb and I loved each and every one of them. Pity that the English alphabet is so poor for letters…
