    This is a colour that is good for things in nature, skin colour, food or wood, especially when there are multiple shades and complicated shapes, but as a solid colour (textile or paint) it would not be my favourite. The shell is in a context favourable to the colour.

    The shell looks like it’s made of cookie dough. Sweet.

    Thank you, Ice Swimmer! There is a surprising lack of colors beginning with D in English so I really didn’t have many choices here. I wasn’t that excited about desert, but in the end it ended up being one of my favorite photos of the series. I just really love that shell!

    I can’t think of any colours starting with D in Finnish or Swedish either. Word initial* “d” doesn’t really exist in Finnish, only in loan words will it occur.

    Are the any in Portuguese?
    * = in other positions it is a late addition to the standard language, a compromise between t, r, l and ð that occur in various dialects.

    Ice Swimmer,

    In Portuguese D is very common in all positions, but there are also not that may colours starting with D. I could only find/think of two: Dourado (golden) and Damasco (apricot, both the colour and the fruit).
