It is so easy to forget that the sky is still above us after dark. We see and appreciate the stars yet we often fail to spot the eldritch beauty of a clouded sky with a near full moon shining through.
Here is one to bring out the closet Goths and any stray vampires we have in our midst.
A few days before the last full moon I was picnicking in the desert as I showed in last week’s SWF.
About an hour after that photo was snapped, I looked into the night sky and saw the thin cloud whitened by the light of the moon and the dark depths of space showing through the gaps.
A number of thoughts and images crossed my mind, including HP Lovecraft’s gothic horror title, “The Colour Out Of Space.”
Was the dreaded Cthulhu peering down on us through the gaps in those clouds?
As I said at the start, one for the Goths amongst us.
