I would like to save a 3-band raster to file using rasterio.

The official docs have examples for saving a single band image in both the quickstart and in the advanced topics.

What I would like to do is something like..

with rasterio.open('image.tif', 'w', **meta) as dst:

This raises the following error for an array with a shape of (256, 256, 3).

ValueError: Source shape (256, 256, 3) is inconsistent with given indexes 3

The numpy array needs to be in bands, rows, cols order (z, y, x) not cols, rows, bands (x, y, z).
