The latest instalment in this thread calls for examples of analogous colours – in other words, ones that are adjacent on the colour wheel:
The most common mnemonic to help with remembering the ‘proper’ sequence of colours in the spectrum is ‘ROYGBIV’: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Here are some images that put together good neighbours.
Two examples here: a flower from Monet’s Garden in Giverny and a selection of flowering courgettes from the Rialto Market in Venice

Finally, this is an electronic display in The Mall of The Emirates in Dubai. The colours actually cycle through the whole spectrum
Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Complimentary Colours
Nice pictures! That flower from Monet’s garden is absolutely stunning. But I think you mean analogous colors as opposed to complementary? Complementary colors are opposite to each other in the color wheel (not adjacent)
Thank you. You are quite right, of course, about complementary colours being opposite each other on the wheel. Must try harder.
Beautiful photos for this week’s challenge. Thanks for so much playing 😀
