Moon light shadow

Moon light -  1/465000  - Sun

Under the moon light there is very profound various greys world. It is silent.
I am one who is attracted by the colour tone of grey, which is found in the shadows.
I am interested in the tone of the plants. The green colour of plants is mysterious. This is because you can not dye any thing green using plants, even though they are green. You can dye something to green briefly, but then the colour vanishes like an illusion and turns into a sort of brown colour. The green colour can not be stabilised. Green is a colour of an illusion and shows its colour only when there is life.
Under the moon light, you can see very profound, various greys in it. When various grey colour of the plants under the moon light are taken pictures, you can see pale green colour again in this blue-grey world. 
False or real.
The flowers and weeds in a field attract me as well. Their various shapes and perfection surprises me. For whom and for what is it so beautiful?
They are just there. I feel that their existence tells more than a thousand words sometimes.
Under the moon light we can share our life with nature.
