A jewel at sunset, the commune of Saint-Just-et-le-Bézu in the Aude sparkles with a yellow green sky beyond red oak branches. The distant mountains although sunk in blackness are corrugated with perpendicular red rock in light from the sun ray. The foreground is black like the mountains, but the saint’s forest is alive; as if burning with leaves of flame, dancing in its last moments of visibility to carry flower forms of light toward dark night.
