But that's mainly due to how the human eye works. You have receptors that can distinguish between colors but those aren't sensitive enough to work in darkness. Which only leaves those receptors that still work in low-light environments. However, they can't detect different colors, which is why you'll only be able to see shades of grey. Essentially, humans are colorblind in darkness.
