The Sunset Guardian by enunez The Sunset Guardian by enunez
I went to this beach, very popular... with a couple of photographer friends. The whole time I was photographing there was this dog getting into the shots, and initially I consider him an intruder. So finally the sun was below the horizon, and I decided to include the half moon in the image, and one more time the dog came to my frames.
This time I decided to include him as part of the scene, but the low light was producing 5 secs exposure which wasted a lot of my attempts because the dog will start to turn his head in the middle of the exposure. Finally, 5 secs of him looking to the horizon...

I hope you like it!

Dogs are usually so excited to be at the beach, it is really amazing that this one stayed so still for that amount of time. Even animals can enjoy a sunset, they're one of the great beauties of our planet. He looks like he's longing for something.

Thanks... This was only 5 seconds of him staying stil... he was running around, and having a blast in the beach.

You're welcome. Yes I know. I was noting that. He, like most dogs was excited to be at the beach. Which is why it so neat that he was even still at all (even for 5 seconds). Of course, I'm totally over exaggerating that observation, he'd have to be still at some point. Great work, none the less!
