50 Shades of Blue

The notion that there are 50 words for snow in the Inuit-Yupik languages has been discredited, although it makes complete sense to me to that language vocabulary reflects the speaker’s view of the World. Anyways, I think there should be 50 words for Blue, at least in the Arctic. On a sunny winter day the sky is reflected in the snow, which results in many hues of Blue.

“If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue.”

Paul Gauguin

At the same token, on overcast days, we get 50 shades of Gray (no pun intended).
