First things first - BIN YOUR UV!
Most UV's (yours sounds as though it fits this category) stops some blues reaching the sensor - which is not good for azure blues.
If you want to protect the front element of your lenses (insurance usually provides much more protection for a lot less money) as you are digital get a clear glass filter like the Canon Regular or the Hoya Digital Pro 1 Protector.
At www.speedgraphic.com the Canon options are cheaper than the Hoya at 35 for the 72mm size.
As you are a beginner you may not be aware can emphasis the blues post processing when you get home using most makes of image editing software.
You can also make blue skies (and many other colours) more saturated with a circular pol filter - though the effect usually only works well when the sun is shining, not to low or high in the sky, and over your shoulder.
Basically you rotate the front part of the pol and if the colours are saturated at one setting use it if you want the effect. If the colours do not saturate the light is not right for the effect so remove the pol as it needs an extra 1.5 to 2 shutter speeds when in place.
