The habit of getting up early to see the sunrise

There are many sunrises that we miss because we are sleeping, but not on this occasion when I have been able to capture the colors of the sky and the first lights of the day in Alcorisa, in Teruel, and that I share in La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos.

It's the reward for getting up early. The candilazo gives us these prints. We are facing 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.
