Llobregat River (Catalonia)

The night before I took this photograph of the Llobregat River, it rained a lot and the water was brown and muddy. I thought this was curious, because the name of the river, Llobregat, originates from an ancient Latin word meaning ‘dark’, ‘sorrowful’, or ‘muddy’.

The Llobregat, at 170 kilometers long, is the second longest river in Catalonia. The source is in the limits of ‘Castellar de n’Hug’ in the Cadí Mountains, and it ends in the Mediterranean Sea in the city of ‘El Prat de Llobregat,’ near Barcelona.

I took this photo from a bridge near Balsareny town. I am always captivated by a full-running river. What about you?
