Scarlet is such a vibrant, passionate, colour, that even a little bit of scarlet in a photo will make it stand out. My first photo was taken in Copenhagen last winter, and the Lady in Red really stands out against the yellow bus, even though the pigeons in the foreground seem to be ignoring her!
And from winter to summer, my next shot was taken on a summer holiday in Italy, and the pops of red, scarlet and orange really bring life to the scene.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, soldiers’ uniforms were often scarlet in colour, as you can see from these re-enactors demonstrating the various types of uniforms used by British armies in days gone by.
Thanks to Jennifer for her prompt.
