I may get an argument here about whether or not this light is "orange" or "golden". This is where being a guy comes in handy though because even though I scored off the chart on the color discrimination test, because I'm a guy I'm not expected to understand the subtle variations between orange and sienna and tangerine (and it's probably true that I couldn't call them by their given names). Which in this case works out well for me because I can respond to any suggestion that this is not, in fact, orange with the Bill Engvall standard, "Sorry... I'm just a guy".

I'll go for tangerine glow, thus covering most of the bases.

Whatever you call it, it's spectacular.

What a stunningly atmospheric photograph, it's beautiful.. whatever colour the beholder wants to call it!

Makes me think of the Beatles: Picture yourself in a boat on a river, With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

Tangerine! Now you said it! The most beautiful orange/tangerine/blood red sky I've seen!

Looks orange to me (and I'm not a guy). We have oranges and tangerines in our fruit basket, and they are pretty much the same colour.

Tangerine. Yes. And cinnamon.... And perfect. And I know that pier....

Amazing, whatever you call it!

Doesn't matter what color we call it. But I think the tourist bureau would want this. Are you calling them or should I make the call on your behalf?
