"My eyes got used to your red sunsets"... This image in Las Fotos de los Lectores de La Vanguardia lives up to the saying, with this spectacular sunset in the sky of La Conrreria.
This place located in the Coll de Montalegre de la Serralada de Marina, on the border between the municipality of Tiana and that of Sant Fost de Campsentelles, looks reddish from the candlelight in the last moments of the day.
The candilazo is a meteorological phenomenon in which the clouds in the sky show a wide palette of colors that goes from pink to the most intense orange.
As part of the phenomenon of scattering of sunlight, in the morning and afternoon hours, when the sun is closest to the horizon, the light that reaches Earth is soft tones between red and orange.
In a certain way, when this light passes through the clouds, it illuminates them and it could be said that it colors them with those hues.
