Why would I be out in the garden at midnight?

Good question. It’s the collie, you see. A good night’s sleep is greatly assisted by a dog who’s gone wee wees just before we all retire.

It often falls to me, as I’m a bit of a night-owl. So out we go. And I have to walk around with Tess, because she’s clever enough to pretend the business has been done then sneak back in.

There’s something about the light in May. It has a ‘beginning of the summer’ lushness.

And there it was; a small light from the corner of the house throwing a slight curve of illumination over the newly filled-out herb bed with a faint ghost of light fading its way up the path towards the old outbuilding.

Dog restored to the house, I returned smiling and feeling stealthy. Sometimes the ‘mood’ of the darkness changes from moment to moment.

But it hadn’t…

I jammed the iPhone against the brickwork of the house and fired off shot after shot, trying different framing.

I stared at the results for a while … then decided to share the best one here. I hope you like it and its mood.
