Distant red

Red is an odd choice to represent distance. 'Aerial perspective' lightens and casts a blue shade on far-away objects. However, like the use of warm colours in shadow areas instead of cool ones, reds, oranges and purples attract attention and draw your eye in, thus making the observer look towards the horizon.
