    Not me. I was well on the way to work on the train by then, and it was daylight when I got off the train. The only purple for me was the prose I was composing in my half-sleep on the 6:57 to London.

    Are we sure that some of these aren't auto white balance errors on iPhones?

    Truly beautiful. I wish I was more of a morning person so I can catch up on these kinds of sights!

    It's been a long time since I've seen sunrise, remind me again, isn't it the dramatic lighting conditions seen on the way home from an unusually late session at the pub?

    Or the result of assimilating some petrochemical derivatives????

    I can get skies like that just by stacking my cheap ND filters.

    :D Actually, that was a criticism of a seascape photo I posted in Appraisal recently - there was a magenta cast to it.

    Could be religious thing.
    In C.o.E and R.C. I think, purple raiment is worn for mourning.

    Hellfire and damnation looming, later, less cloudy with lots of warm sunshine....:rolleyes:

    Where'd you get that from? Throughout Europe it's black unless you're a queen - in which case it may be white.
