Mulitple shadow colors

sphere.jpgI want to get a shadow with a black to blue fade. I can fake it with a texture but I know that there is some way to do it with shaders. Ray switch has an shadow attribute but I not able to get the effect that I like. Maybe a ramp to shadow matt to ray switch to mix shader that combines with my surface shader. Also it's the shadow on the object not the cast shadow that I want. Like the image
