"You'll see." Headlights cut into the darkness. Feathers of pine reached in and turned from black to green. Sap glistened on knotted trunks, then winked out as they passed.

Can someone school me the meaning of these sentences please. Thanks.

As the headlights shone on the pine needles, they were illuminated. Therefore, the needles appeared green instead of black. Furthermore, the headlights made the weeping sap on the branches glisten, but as the light from the headlights passed, the glistening spots were no longer visible.
