What colour are your eyes?

After failing to answer the simple question about eye colour in the questionnaire this morning, I decided to do some Googling to answer the question that has been bugging me for years.

What colour are my eyes exactly?

It seems such a simple question. We writers assign eye colours to characters all the time, but I have never really been able to say what colour my own eyes are. Or at least not by means of a one-word answer such as "blue" or "brown". The best I have been able to come up with is something like: blue-grey with amber and brown flecks, can look green in certain lights.

Which it seems is about as good as it's going to get. There really isn't a one word description for it.

According to Wikipedia, the closest is blue-green. (Scroll down to find the description.)

To understand my problem fully,

First picture is taken with flash. The same colour is seen in bright natural light.

This picture is taken in slightly dimmer natural light.

And if the light is dimmer still, this is what you get.

No wonder I'm confused. I haven't tweaked the colours at all in these images.

Just to complete the picture, this is what my inner eye colour is supposed to be. *g*

Your Inner Eye Color Is Blue

You've got the personality of a blue eyed women
You're intense and expressive - and always on the go
You've also got a sweet, playful side - which draws men in
