Lifeguard on duty in paradise on New Years Eve 2016

This shot was taken on a little island belonging to the Bahamas on New Year’s Eve 2016. It is showing a lifeguard on duty dressed as Santa sitting in a beach chair. The man seemed to be lost in thought as he was gazing over the turquoise Caribbean waters. Maybe he was asking himself “what will the new year bring?”.
