That strange violet hue. On my first trip into the Schoolfield Complex of Dan River Inc., an enormous textile mill campus in Virginia, I was blown away by a strange violet hue as the sun was about to rise. The majority of the light coming in was the blue-tinted remnant of civil twilight - but it was coming through huge banks of old factory windows that had been coated in red paint. This combination, along with the first strains of sunlight, led to this rainbow on the third floor of the original mill building, still chock-full of equipment (seen at right of frame).
