Well, not quite midnight... Looking after my husband's dog while he was out playing guitar got me outside late at night. (don't tell Dean as I was supposed to have fed him hours earlier...) Again I am grateful for these chores that get me out of doors when I otherwise wouldn't be.
The light was magical. One evening short of a full moon, it was blazing above the clouds. I couldn't see it but it lit up the clouds like the sun had just set. The sky had pale blue and pink in it and I had no need of a flashlight to find my way to the gate. The trees in the apple orchard were stark against the dim white with their dusting of fresh snow and the evergreens (okay, I can't tell the difference between pines, firs and spruce but I think these are not pines as they are not dying from beetle infestation) looked very dramatic. Of course an ordinary camera cannot do this dark scene justice but I like these pictures just the same.
