If I recall correctly, the sky was golden in the Fire Age. I believe it's blue because the Waters invaded Heaven during the Gods' War.

    From one end of the sky to the other, the Celestial River     arches overhead. This undulating swatch of light has the     greatest concentration of stars and constellations. In the     Gods War the Celestial River flooded the Sky Dome so it is     blue now, and not gold as it was during the Golden     Age. However, Polaris, Ourania and Dayzatar released their     divine powers and would have destroyed the river, except that     it transformed to be able to exist in the Sky World. Thus     this water is now fiery, as the God Learners demonstrated     when they summoned it to destroy the Waertagi during the     Imperial Age.


Which means, of course, that water is naturally blue. In *our* world, the ocean is blue because it reflects the sky--but in Glorantha, it's closer to the other way around.
