Mid-November and the heat is still present. In Sitges, in the Garraf region, it seems like it is summer: the clear water, the warm colors and even the bravest dare to take a swim. Idyllic place to go and escape from Barcelona, as we see in La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos.
In this photograph we see the contrast with the rest, capturing the lit sky, as if it were made of fire, with the intense colors of the candlelight.
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.
