Just half a day's drive East from Beaune, the French Jura are the low limestone mountains where the land finally stops being France before the Alps rise up from Lac Leman/Lake Geneva.

A refreshing breath of clear air, with vista of lakes and trees, These days the gentle Jura is the province of beef, veal and dairy cattle, precision industries like watch-making and spectacles having been lost to cheaper territories.

And the calves are fitted with an interesting nose-ring which maybe helps them graze deeper in to the green grass.
