Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

Orange, is a stimulating vibrant blend of red and yellow which is often associated with change like the autumn leaves showing a change in season.  It is often used as a transitional color such as the color of sunrise which meant another day or sunset representing the coming darkness or a change in time.   Depending on the contrast of shades and tints, the hues of orange may mean different things from domination to passion, aggression to soothing, deceit to friendly among others. 

Despite the fact that orange is often recognized as a happy, flamboyant color, I prefer the combination of orange and black.  The contrast between these two colors as shown in my photos below represents the hue of me.    Orange portray the kind of life I have….always moving about….embracing change even if its unsettling or daunting at times (as represented by the shades of black), I still continue to shine and rise up to the challenge of another day. 

As what the famous Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung, said, ” Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.  It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”

Beausoleil, South of France

Beausoleil

 

Photo taken during sunrise at Beausoleil, a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes, Southeastern France.

It is 15 minutes away from the Italian border and is right next to Monte Carlo, Monaco. With its calm,

picturesque provincial landscape, warm weather and glitzy lifestyle, Beausoleil is considered by many

Parisians as a fabulous holiday destination.

Sunrise at Victoria Falls

Sunrise at Victoria Falls

 

The best time to see Victoria Falls is between 5:30 to 6:30 in the morning to get the best view of sunrise

over the breathtaking scenery surrounding the falls.  The sun rises behind the spray of the falls creating

this magical scene.  Victoria Falls is located in Zimbabwe and is one of the seven natural wonders

of the world.  An absolute must do!
