Columbus Day

Blue skies for Blue Monday

Tomorrow is a national holiday in Spain, celebrating the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, specifically the Bahamas, which occurred on October 12, 1492. Which makes the current one a wonderful short week!

This is the Columbus monument in Seville (see "1492" on top?), more precisely in the Murillo Gardens. A picture of the entire monument can be seen here


  1. All my life I never knew it was celebrated in Spain. Shame on me. Beautiful photo. :)

  2. What a great shot. Beautiful architecture against that gorgeous blue sky.

  3. Beautiful photo! I have seen his monument in Barcelona and it is gorgeous too...Christine

  4. Nice blue for the day! Happy Blue Monday!

  5. When I was a child, we always celebrated Columbus Day.

    Happy Blue Monday, Mar! Check out my book giveaways. I just added another one.

  6. A very nice blue feature honoring a special day. I enjoy visiting to see something different from your country.

  7. Wow this sky is really blue !

    BTW each year there are more Halloween decorations ! The pictures I took in this Garden store didn't have any Halloween things last year and this year there is a whole part of the store with Halloween things.
    People also start to decorate their gardens ! 5 years ago there was nothing at least I never noticed anything.

  8. Such sparkling blue and your photo angle is really exciting. Have a great day.
