Exposure: 1/1000 sec.

In fact, this man is painting the wall, not the sky :-)
He uses lime (calcium oxide) instead of white paint. It's very typical in the Algarve (Portugal) to paint the traditional houses with lime. With this method the light from the sun is more efficiently reflected, helping the houses to keep cool.
