I love Scarlet. It’s always been one of my favourite colours. It’s so bright and vibrant.
It’s a great colour for today’s Crayola challenge.
According to Wikipedia Scarlet is brilliant red color with a tinge of orange. In the spectrum of visible light, and on the traditional color wheel, it is one-quarter of the way between red and orange, slightly less orange than vermilion.
Here are three of my photos which I think represent the colour scarlet….
I love these chairs. I sat here for the whole morning when I took the local bus from Lakka, where our boat was moored. Paxos is one of my favourite Greek islands!
I found this random scarlet bicycle while sightseeing in Athens.
I love this photo. We were sailing in the Gulf of Volos and had stopped at the tiny harbour town of Pighadi. We went for a walk along the road out of the harbour, and through a gap in the trees I looked down on this little boat.
