Sue from “A Word In Your Ear” blog dips into her old English Oxford dictionary on a weekly basis and picks out a word on the page that falls open. This is the topic of the photo challenge, and this week it was – Orange. So I thought I would give it a go.
One of my recent experiences of Orange is while scuba diving in the Red Sea, Egypt last year. One of the most common fish that you see around the reefs are Jewel Fairy Basslets; these range in colours from pink to orange. They are only tiny little fish about a couple of inches long, but they are so abundant and so colourful, so join me and dive into the glorious sea in search of these orange beauties.
I’m sure we can find some more, lets dive a little deeper.
The deeper you dive, you loose the colour red after about 5m, this is due to refraction in the water. With photography you get around this by using filters, flashes and a little of colour adjustment in Lightroom.
However come into shallower water and the reef is still bursting with little orange wonders.
As you come to the end of your dive, you have to do a 3 minute safety stop at about 5 metres. This is to allow slow release of some of the Nitrogen from your blood stream that will have built up during your dive. However you can make good use of this 3 minute stop and nosey around the surrounding reefs for more of the fairies.
So I hope you’ve enjoyed my interpretation of Orange and also our little trip under the sea.
Thankyou for spending the time to read my post, have a wonderful day and please come back soon. Remember any word that is highlighted in my blog will take you to something of relevant interest.
