Week 10: Analogous Colours


Nature's full of them!
In all sorts of guises.
From the reds and oranges of an early morning sunrise

to the reds and oranges of this gorgeous rose.

Analogous colours, as described by Google, the arbiter of all things inane, 
are usually 3 colours that are positioned next to each other on the colour wheel.  
They're best used with either warm or cool colours, not only creating a look
 that has a certain temperature to it, but proper colour harmony too.
 
They're always beautiful, sometimes bold, but NEVER boring 
even when they're in the more muted shades.
I experimented this week with trying to find analogous colours that created a mood.
Warm rich reds and oranges
Light and bright greens and yellows
Cool and calm blues and violets.
I couldn't resist including this little Sparrow. 
She has such subtle colouring and the most delicately nuanced plumage

"Taking pictures is savouring life intensely, 
every hundredth of a second."
