Photo of our garden in the dark

So the first question is whether you’re seeing anything, then I’d ask whether you can see details and finally whether the whole scene looks mysterious and a bit cool. I think it does on my side of things anyway.

The last bits of sunlight had just vanished and because of all the snow around whatever little ambient light there was got reflected around and lit things that way.
