Holme Moss.

I like the solitude and emptiness of this photograph, the day had a north westerly wind blowing into my face with the back end of the winter in it's breath, and you could feel the new spring not far away. I am a great admirer of the artist Ashley Jackson, his images are collected from these parts and his gallery is in the next valley to this at Holmefirth. His artwork speaks to me in a way that translates the raw emotion and feeling of where and what the landscape was telling him in that moment or memory, not portraying the scenes exactness but placing emotion in the brush strokes. I would give anything to transfer that something onto canvass or paper with a brush, but I can't, so I try to do it with pixels, not giving you the scene as it is but how I felt it at the time.
