I went to Normandy, Brittany, and the Loire Valley in May of 2017 with John Baker of Travel Images. I made many fun images.

Of course we had to shoot the bridge made famous by many of Monet's paintings. It was raining, and I had to wait in the rain for some time to get a shot with no one on the bridge. The bridge was not green in the paintings.
