Languedoc France - The red sun on clouds make eerie view over burnt land in the Minervois

The sharp angle of the sun, descending in the sky, creates eerie colors over the Minervois landscape.
Here, near Minerve, and Cesseras, the land has been ravaged by a forest fire, so the fields are blackened with burnt trees and brush. But ever resilient nature, has put a green stamp to it, and who knows how it will grow green next year.
Forest fires are a constant worry, and fire crews are often found on hill tops, and village squares ready to battle
as quickly as possible the flash that becomes a fire. With the hot bright sun, and the wind - be extra careful with fire, or glass!
