A sliver of sun

Sunrise in the valley in July comes in stages. First the direct sunlight hits the village, out of our sight. We first see it on very tops of the hills opposite, where it lights the scrubland as if with a spotlight. The effect of light and shadow on the colour green is dramatic, gradually the yellow-green version of the valley reduces the blue-green shadowy valley to nought.

5 to remember
en etapas – in stages
el matorral – the scrubland
como si – as if
un foco – a spotlight
a la nada – to nought
