Photography Tour Overview: Burgundy is not just about wine production, it's also about ancient villages merging with today's inhabitants to make Burgundy, the 'Bourgogne' in French, what it is in this, the 21st century. Burgundy's Côte-d'Or region is the focus of our photography tour and will include chateaus, ancient towns and villages, an abbey and old town Dijon. Each has it's own 'signature' such as narrow streets laden with colored doors, windows boxes overflowing with flowers, and much more. Please join us in Burgundy, France!

Our itinerary . . .

Just a moment, first things first! We suggest that you set your camera clock to the local time, as your images will then synchronize with the times in our included photo tour field notes.

Days 1, 2, 3 + 4  |  Burgundy
We'll gather at noon, and during the included lunch John will present a digital orientation of the photography highlights expected in the coming days. We'll then head eastwards and begin our exploration of Burgundy in the back lanes of the Commarin district, plus a chateau [castle]. You'll photograph the grandly situated Chateauneuf [new castle], a quaint walled town and chateau with much to offer in the way of photography, not unlike most other villages in Burgundy. We'll then shoot canal scenes and more prior to heading on to Semur for our four night stay.
On days 2, 3 and 4 we'll shoot early and late, and continue to photograph the best of Burgundy's Côte-d'Or region. Included will be Flavigny - think of the movie Chocolat - famed for its licorice production and not chocolate! Noyers is a wonderful old town to photograph, as are a series of ancient villages including our home town of Semur. The chateau at Posanges and Fontenay Abbey are also included. In addition to all of the above, while we are exploring villages on foot there will be plenty of colored doors, windows, flowers, insects, and still life on the run subject matter to photograph. Then finally, it's also about the rural life we see and photograph between the villages such as hillside vineyards being tended by families, the distant views of red-roofed villages, hedgerows and country lanes lined with wildflowers, plus Charolais cows peering inquisitively over fences.
Near Semur-en-Auxois, 4 nights

Day 5  |  Burgundy and Dijon
More early light photography, then breakfast. We never head straight to the airport on our last full day, and will continue exploring Burgundy back lanes and villages via a different route from whence we came on day one as we make our way to Dijon. After hotel check-in we'll explore Dijon's medieval old town to close the trip. The included dinner on the last night of our photography tour will feature an 'It's You!' presentation of clients in action by John.
Near Dijon airport, 1 night

Day 6  |  Departure day
As there is no photography scheduled for the day of departure, your flight home can be arranged for any time today.

Exertion level: This photography tour is classified as 'non strenuous' to 'moderately strenuous'
