Why might cells be different colours in different areas of the plant?

I'm trying to revise the plant tissues and cell differentiation and was wondering why different areas of the plant cells are different colours. Is this related to the amount of chlorophyll?

Thanks!

Photosynthesis allows plants to produce more chlorophyll, (the chemical chlorophyll makes plants green in colour) which is as a result of the sunlight that beams down at the plant. If the sunlight only reaches a certain point of the plant because the plant is positioned not facing the sun directly, this may be a valid reason as to why the colouring is different on different angles of the plant
