Up in a plane gets me thinking about the infinite. The colours of sunset accentuate this mood. Here are four real views from my most recent evening flight. Images made with a lens.

March blizzard in Keswick, Cumbria. The whiteout merges the snow on the ground, the flakes in the air and the clouds.

âne de Provence

âne de Provence

A family of Provence donkeys in a field in the Alpes-de-Haut-Provence in the week before Palm Sunday. That's a Jack, a Jenny and two foals. The âne de Provence is a recognised breed, also known as « âne des Croisés » or « âne des Saintes »; it is characterised by its grey hair and dorsal strip known as the Cross of St. Andrew. The ones I have met have been friendly and intelligent. They're now fairly rare with fewer than a thousand currently registered.
Donkey Sunday means Palm Sunday, celebrating when Jesus rode in to Jerusalem on a donkey to fulfil the prophecy of Zechariah.
