Photographer's Note

The colour orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585 620 nm.

The colour is named after the orange fruit, introduced to Europe via the Indo-European word "nāranja". Before this was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to (in Old English) as geoluhread, which translates into Modern English as yellow-red.

The first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512, in the court of King Henry VIII.

Brown is actually derived from the orange part (orange + grey) of the colour spectrum. It can be described as dark orange.
