Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for orange. One of the most vibrant colours, orange is zingy and fresh. It’s a warm colour, friendly and inviting. Soft at dawn, but louder at sunset. From the palest of peaches and apricots through to copper, rust, salmon-pink and terracotta, the range of orange shades in the natural world is phenomenal.

Colour possesses me.
It will always possess me.
That is the meaning
Of this happy hour:
colour and I are one.”

~ Paul Klee

Where can you discover orange?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Dear Jude,
    orange is the colour that is best seen from all the colours at daytime light. Its complimentary colour blue is seen as colour at the last colour in fading light before all colours turn grey. Orange is seen as warmest colour of all prismatic colours.
    Keep well and happy
