That's the kind of dark I like this time of year, Digital! There must be a verb for this time of day, when everything becomes a silhouette. This is wonderful. God bless.

Perfect darkness! Also would make a great jigsaw puzzle.

Make it B & W and it would be a nifty '70s look-alike! :-)

There are not many things I like about winter, but one is being able to see the structure of a tree and its silhouette against a darkening sky. Thanks!

Beautiful. I love the subtle colors of the sky and the shadows from the surrounding trees. Photos like these are wonderful I take similar ones too.

Agree with the first comment
That kind of "dark" makes the perspective more interesting than only colorful clouds.
Very good.

I love dark photos, and this is so moody and pretty so I love this. Very dramatic and effective. My Sky Watch is here.
