Small quantities of pure water seems colorless in a glass of water.however if much more deep water is present a blue color is noted in sea.it is due to the nature of absorption and scattering of photons.

The main reason is that it let all type of radiations passed through it, if it was absorbing all type of radiations then it would not be, colorless it would be ideal black body..

Because it doesn't contain the kinds of things that make give other liquids their color.
Substances/objects appear colored because the absorb part of the visible spectrum and reflect the rest.
If there are solids suspended in the water, like rust, it will take on the color of the iron oxide. If you dissolve a substance like copper sulfate in water, it molecules absorb the red and green portions of the spectrum making the water appear blue.
Water molecules on their own don't selectively absorb light wave lengths. It passes all off them along, so it doesn't appear colored.

An atom does not contain color ... But it depends on the property of the matter which color (light wavelength) do they reflect...
