Turquoise is one of my favourite colours, so I thought I’d have a peep through my travel photos to find any with that greenish-blue hue I love so much. Here’s some hand-thrown pottery from Turkey accented with turquoise (a good place to start seeing as the word turquoise originally referred to stones coming from Turkey).
Kayaking on turquoise waters in Waterford.
A steaming pool of turquoise in Yellowstone Park.
Startling turquoise variscite in Utah.

More varied than any landscape was the landscape in the sky, with islands of gold and silver, peninsulas of apricot and rose against a background of many shades of turquoise and azure. – Cecil Beaton
She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea, dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar. – Janet Fitch (White Oleander)

I love the kayaking photo, makes me want to get right out there on the water. 🙂
I think you went turquoise because you’re on some tropical island and you knew if you told us we’d all explode with envy… so you did the softly-softly reveal! 😉
Such a beautiful peaceful color. Makes me want to hit the beach again 😎
