Spiller's Millennium Mills

I've had a bit of mail from people asking me about the colours in the last few night shots I took so I'm posting these by way of an explanation.

 

I take a lot of shots at night and like to experiment with the timing of the exposure and the white balance. Partly because I like some of the interesting colours that come out that way but mainly because I don't know what I'm doing and figure that if I take 30 shots I might accidentally get a good one. It was pitch black and the building isn't lit up at all. I just pointed the camera at it and let it calculate the white-balance even though there was nothing white to pick up and this is what came out.
