One Word Photo Challenge: Scarlet

scarlet (ˈskɑːlɪt)
1. (Colours) a vivid red colour, sometimes with an orange ting
2. cloth or clothing of this colour

3. (Colours) of the colour scarlet
4. sinful or immoral, esp unchaste


This week I was surprised that Scarlet is more an orange-red colour when I thought it was a strong darker red so that was interesting.

I have picked this week a photo that was taken at the wonderful Barossa Valley (wine growing region of South Australia). It is of an old truck – a Fargo, which I had never heard of – it was used as a sign to a local winery.

For more scarlet photos please head on over to Jennifer Wells blog here and go down to the scarlet link.
