I have captured for La Vanguardia Readers' Photos this series of photographs of the magical sunset in Porqueres on an almost summery autumn day.
As can be seen in the images, the sunset in this town in Pla de l'Estany shines with all the intensity of the colors of the candilazo.
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.
