ABC Wednesday: O is for . . .

~ Orange ~

There are some interesting things about the color of Orange that I read about on Wikipedia  .

- It is a color that is between the spectrum of Yellow and Red.
- It is the National color of the Netherlands.
- It is a team color on many professional sports teams such as the Miami Marlins, New York Knicks, Denver Broncos and Anahiem Ducks.
- Due to it's brightness, it is used in the construction industry on road signs.
- Prisoners wear orange jumpsuits so they can be easily seen and stand out.

My favorite kind of Orange is the one created in the sky during some amazing sunsets.  I took this photo from the balcony of my apartment in the town of Praiano on the Amalfi Coast of Italy.

  3. Hi girls, thanks so much for liking my photo and for your comments....

    Annie, the sunsets were pretty amazing in Praiano. It's cool to learn something about the colors. I didn't know half the things about the color orange that I read on Wikipedia. Fun way to learn. :)

    Anne, I love orange too. Very cool that we both picked orange.

    Thanks so much Annie & Anne. Have a great week.
