June 29: return from Igualada

The ride back was in the golden hour and continued past sunset, so the landscapes going by looked especially lovely.

I'm getting a turmeric vibe here, not sure why.

I wonder if that's a private house, or a monastery, or a lair, or what.

Ruddy light on a ruddy wall.

Montserrat in the lowering sun. Those trees below it in the middleground are cute.

Getting close to sunset.

Moon now high in the sky.

A mysterious meadow.

We wound down along Av. Francesc Marimon through the town of Esparreguera, with a rather dramatic backdrop of Montserrat and cloudscape.

The setting sun was at just the right angle to reach deep into the central cavity of this apartment building.

There it goes.

Whope, not quite!

Looking rather infernal at this point.

Trucks scooping up the last bits of sun and then reflecting it off the car just behind us.

I'm pretty sure this is the river Llobregat, here reflecting the full sky spectrum.

We went through some heavily industrial areas as we paralleled the Llobregat's course to the sea on the A-2 highway.

Still plenty of sky colors as the twilight deepened.

This is probably still the Llobregat, looking a bit dry. Also: Belt of Venus beyond.

We passed through this arcade once back inside the Ciutat Vella on the way home. I think this is the Passatge dels Coloms next to the Boqueria market.

This extraordinarily orange wash of light makes this building on Plaça Sant Agustí look a bit like it's glowing red-hot.

Dusk at the doorstep.

The Parròquia de la Mare de Déu del Carme was eerily side-lit. The ghostly color of the light increased the eeriness.
