When it comes to pastoral scenery, it's hard to beat the Burgundy region of France. We took a few bus trips through the countryside as part of tours organized by Viking River Cruises. We took a cruise from Avignon up the Rhone and Saone Rivers from Viking, and each day while we were docked was filled with excursions into the countryside. A lot of it looked a lot like this scene, which was shot out the window of the bus.
I shot this with my iPhone 5s, which is proof of the adage that the best camera is the one you have with you. I actually had my big Nikon camera with me, too. But this was the one accessible as we were moving down the road.
