Look at L'Escala's cloud blankets

I share this very special image in the Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia. The moon on its way to setting, with blankets of sumptuous clouds, drawn by the wind and painted by the sun. Below, the sea of ​​Empúries and the little town of Sant Martí, and at the bottom of everything, we have the Canigó with some snow.

At 2,784 meters above sea level, Canigó was considered the highest mountain in the Pyrenees due to the sharp difference in level that separates it from the Roselló plain, a prominence that makes it more impressive than other more enclosed mountains located between higher valleys.

L'Escala is one of the most popular destinations in summer, as it has a large number of coves and beaches, but in autumn it also invites you to enjoy the light of its Mediterranean landscape by walking along the promenade and the coastal path. And the spectacle is also in the sky with these clouds colored by the light.

It is a meteorological phenomenon in which the clouds in the sky show a wide palette of colors ranging 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.

The main moon in the image is the November full moon, the Beaver. It is known by this name because this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze completely to ensure a supply of warm furs for the winter.

It is also suggested that the name Beaver Full Moon comes from the fact that beavers in autumn actively prepare for winter. And, also, sometimes, this full moon is also known as the Icy moon or Frost moon.
