Old man relaxing at the beach with his dog

I captured this image at the bar at Valdanos beach. This old man was relaxing with a drink with his dog at his side while watching the sunset. He knew various people at the beach and was often waving and talking to them as they passed by. This was a rare moment where he was still and pensive.
