During the spring and the autumn sunrise in Spain is very late around 8 am. The pilgrims who stay in the albergues (hostels) over night must leave before 8 am so the owners have enough time to clean the rooms before new arrivals. Well the first few kilometers pilgrims walk in the darkness before the sun start to rise. Most of the time they walk to the west and they don't pay attention to the sky, but if they stop and turn 180 degree they can often see the sky like this one.
This photo was shot 237 km (148 miles) from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port and 527 km (329 miles) before Santiago de Compostela.

Magnifique coucher de soleil avec un superbe avant-plan. La lumière sur le haut des arbres crée un bel effet et les couleurs sont merveilleuses.
Toutes mes amitiés,

You must be a lucky few who have witnessed such a delight and nature wonder! A serene moment at magical hour when the morning went on the sky was fantastically on fire with its stunning light painted by the verity of colours and you did have a very interesting silhouetted foreground to complete the compo. Simply gorgeous and a pleasure to behold.

Glorious colours Zbigniew.It pays to sometimes turn 180 degrees for what one leaves behind can be as precious as what one meets in front.Splendid dawn. Regards. Klaudio.
