The Shining Gate by Andrew Paranavitana

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Brandenburger Tor, Berlin, capital of Germany

It was summer and around 4pm, perfect time for the sun to sneak behind the gate and cast it’s rays between the statues horses. The contrast between light rays and silhouette won me over.
