The Daily Hex: Alice Blue

Don't underestimate today's The Daily Hex. Despite its paleness, it is one of those colors that actually has a rich and vibrant story!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?

Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

Perhaps the lightest among all possible shades of blue, one can easily mistake Alice Blue as pure white. It appears mostly on the center part of heavily vignetted photographs, most of which are taken with the camera aimed directly at the bright blue sky.

Alice Blue is said to be the shade of blue most favored by socialite and eldest daughter of US President Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Alice Roosevelt Longworth".

Also, this color is also referred to as icy blue or white-blue because of its pale color that resembles that of the actual ice.
