The exclusivity of the sunsets

Sunsets can offer us an endless number of colors and nuances that no other time of day has, as I wanted to reflect in this series of photographs for La Vanguardia Readers' Photos captured in Alcorisa (Teruel).

This exclusivity in the richness of colors, in reality, is shared with sunrises, since it is due to the phenomenon of the candlelight.

It is, in fact, 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.
