Week 6 - Complementary Colours

Week 6 of the photography challenge is "Complementary Colours". The idea is that colours in opposite sides of a colour wheel complement one another such as blue and orange.

My example for this uses that blue and orange harmony in the form of a lit candle. We recently bought some new candles and one is of light blue colour. When lit and taken in a darkened room, it is possible to see the complementary nature of the blue candle against the orange flame.
