My trip to France in 2011 was lovely and I spent three weeks driving throughout the country. I stayed in Paris at the beginning of the visit and then drove north to the Normandy region where I walked through the somber cemeteries of the fallen soldiers of WWII. Then I drove along the east coast down into the Dordogne region to view the fascinating and ancient cave paintings. Unfortunately, you're not allowed to photograph inside the caves so I wasn't able to capture any great images of the amazing artistry of early man. I then drove through the south of France and visited the sites around Arles. I ended my time in France back in Paris and altogether it was a lovely trip. I took my Canon 5D Mark II and my 24-105mm f.4.0 L, 70-200mm f/2.8 L, 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6, 16-35 f/2.8 II L, and, for the first time a brand new 24mm f/3.5II L Tilt and Shift.
