```The colors in ContourPlot are based on the value of the function not the density of the contours.

f[x_, y_] = y*Cos[x] + x*Cos[y];

Row[{ContourPlot[f[x, y],
{x, -Pi, 3 Pi}, {y, -Pi, 3 Pi},
Contours -> 15,
ColorFunction -> "TemperatureMap",
ImageSize -> 300],
Plot3D[f[x, y],
{x, -Pi, 3 Pi}, {y, -Pi, 3 Pi},
ColorFunction -> "TemperatureMap",
ImageSize -> 300]}]

Hello,
I beg your pardon in advance if this question has already been
asked..I looked among some older posts but I didn't find an answer.
I'm plotting a function of two variables with ContourPlot.
It's something very simple like:

ContourPlot[f(x,y), {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0.01, 0.1},
ColorFunction -> "LightTemperatureMap",
FrameLabel -> {.....}]

I'm using the command colorfunction because I'd like Mathematica to
plot the regions where function f(x,y) is smaller with blue and the
densest regions with red. I try to explain my problem: the colors I
get are almost exactly what I want, except for the densest regions,
which are white. How can I color them with red?

Thank you so much for your kind help.
Cheers
Valentina
