#ScrapbookOutdoors Week 3: ‘Blue’

A recap of our favourite photos from #ScrapbookOutdoors Week 3

For week 3 in our #ScrapbookOutdoors project we wanted to come to the rescue of the colour blue. We thought it might have been having a week after ‘Blue Monday’, so we urged you to get outside and show how great the blue outdoors could be, after all as a European composer once said “I’m Blue da ba dee da ba da”

What a week it was, more of you than ever before got involved from around the world and sent us your photos on the hunt for ‘blue’ in the outdoors. Unfortunately we’re not able to showcase them all, but here are a few of our favourites from this week:
