Lonesome Dawn

Uploaded: August 09, 2015 03:26:31 | Entered: August 09, 2015 03:34:45


Just before sunrise -

I found this lone tree out on the ranch a few weeks ago - I had just stopped and grabbed a coffee.... Light Blonde Roast, 2 raw sugars and topped off with steamed breve - It paired perfectly with this morning!
