The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Night clouds

Night cloud

I went outside the other night just as day was turning into night and caught these huge clouds shining against darkened trees.


I suspect the clouds must have been catching reflections of the recently vanished sun. Or maybe the half moon was bright enough to give them that pillowy glow? Whatever the reason, I had to rush back inside for the camera so I could share the beauty.

I definitely need to remember to go outside more often during the gloaming!
