Turquoise Hexagon Sun (5:09)

It has been suggested that the title, Turquoise Hexagon Sun, was inspired by a documentary featuring a prominent turquoise hexagonal sun lens flare.

The number of blades making up the shutter of a camera influences the shape of the lens flare produced. As such, a six-bladed shutter would produce a hexagonal sun flare effect.
