Color Gradient

According to Wikipedia,

“In computer graphics, a color gradient (sometimes called a color ramp or color progression) specifies a range of position-dependent colors, usually used to fill a region.[1] For example, many window managers allow the screen background to be specified as a gradient. The colors produced by a gradient vary continuously with position, producing smooth color transitions.”

Those trees that look like ginormous dandelions? They prove that we’re nowhere near Canada.

Happy Yuri’s Night!
