Sunset in Ciudad Rodrigo-Spain, close to the Portuguese border during the Portugal wildfires that devastated many Portuguese forest last week. More than 30 wildfires were reported that day in the North half of Portugal. The dense smog in the background produced (unfortunately) the anomalous colors of this picture.
