The candilazo stands up to the storm 'Nelson'

This morning I was able to capture this spectacular floodlight on Gavà beach for La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos, after the latest rains from Storm Nelson, which ended up causing a new regression of sand on the coast.

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 the clouds illuminated by the sun's rays, especially at dawn and in the evening.
