When vlogger Zoella was walking along Brighton beach in the spring of 2014, she happened upon an older man in a massive coat and his big white dog. With the sunset and the sea in the background, the image was too beautiful to ignore. Zoella pulled out her camera and snapped a shot, which she later uploaded to Instagram.

“I took this photo of a random man & his dog & other photos on the beach at sunset today!” she posted.

Now, almost two years later, she’s learned that the “random man” turned out to be Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.

“The sun was setting in Brighton, and the sky looked amazing…” Zoella says on her blog. “I grabbed my camera for spontaneous beach pics… I also took these snaps of a man and his dog. I don’t know this man, or his dog, but I feel like I captured a few moments between them that were too precious not to share. If you know this man, let him know these pictures exist as they may make him smile!”

Gilmour’s wife, Polly Samson confirmed on Twitter that Gilmour’s the man in the pics.

Below is Zoella’s original Instagram post. You can see more of her beautiful shots on her blog.
