In La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos we can appreciate the autumnal dazzle of Calafell beach, where the candlelight sky takes over the sky and highlights the shadowed silhouettes of the palm trees and people walking along the shores of the Mediterranean.
Calafell, in the Baix Penedès region, has around 25,000 inhabitants, which multiply in summer with the summer tourism of the Costa Daurada and the infrastructure of apartments and hotels. In autumn, you can enjoy the beach more peacefully.
The municipality of Calafell has three main areas, called Calafell, Segur de Calafell and La Playa de Calafell.
One of the attractions of the beach in autumn is enjoying the views of the candilazo, 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.
