As we’re heading beyond the first 3 months with this 14th Tuesday Photo Challenge, I’m breaking the pattern from last week and shifting to our second color of the series: Orange!
Of course, I am a little partial to this color, as I am from the Netherlands. The Dutch royal family is of the house of Orange-Nassau with the first notable Prince being William I of Orange (aka William the Silent), who led the rebellion against the Spanish known as the Eighty Years war (1568-1648); as he was a threat to Spain’s sovereignty he was assassinated in 1584 in Delft. Of course, that didn’t stop the rebellious lowlanders!
Enough history, as it’s time for your challenge! Find some great examples of the color orange and photograph them; sounds easy, doesn’t it? Orange is an interesting color, as it falls between red and yellow in the spectrum and the specific tone of the color orange can range from fiery to drab depending on its exact place in the spectrum. The pumpkins in this image fall somewhere in the middle, which my eyes tend to like quite a bit.
See, if you can find some orange tones that really suit your taste and speak to you and share them with your fellow challengers and your readership!
