I love walking outside when it's late and quite. Like everything around you is asleep.
Because we don't have a fenced in yard, I walk my dogs in the backyard before bed. Often it is very late and everything is so peaceful outside.
When it's dark and you only have the moon & stars reflecting the light, things look very black and white. I don't see colors, just the contrast of dark and shadowing.
Last night,close to midnight, I walked my dogs in the backyard. It is so peaceful and dark. All color is drained and between black and white, I see shades of gray.
There is something about it that calms me.
I wish I had a photograph to show you. Maybe tonight I will remember to bring a camera outside with me.
