The dawn in Palamós, in the Baix Empordà, seems to have been drawn by an artist, a painter who has used his color palette to make the candlelight manifest in all its intensity and chromatic variety, as seen in The Readers' Photos of La Vanguard.
Palamós is a town on the Costa Brava popular for its maritime landscapes, its beaches, the commercial port and, for gastronomy lovers, for the famous shrimp.
The bay of Palamós is protected from the waves by the large breakwater to the east of the port, which is why it is considered ideal for practicing sailing nautical sports. On the right, it communicates with that of Es Monestir, already in the municipality of Sant Antoni de Calonge.
The candilazo is a meteorological phenomenon in which the clouds in the sky show a wide palette of colors that ranges from pink to the most intense orange.
As part of the phenomenon of dispersion of sunlight, in the morning and afternoon hours, when the sun is closer to the horizon, the light that reaches the Earth is soft tones between red and orange.
In a certain way, when this light passes through the clouds, it illuminates them and could be said to color them with those tones.
The candilazo is also known as arrebol, which is the red color seen in clouds illuminated by the sun's rays, especially at dawn and in the evening.
