Tim’s Daily Photo #45 – Sentinel

The Daily Photo #45- February 14th, 2016 By Tim Neumann of Softlite Studios.com Sentinel I suppose the normal person doesn’t like wet, foggy, cold walks in  the morning, but I (definitely not being considered normal) love the muted tonal ranges that present themselves and the stark compositions that become apparent.
