As a young man I was once told," Jackson you are a young man in a hurry" and now as I celebrate my 75th year I smile and am thankful that I was....passion, belief and a overwhelming desire to capture the Yorkshire landscape drove me then as it still does now.
Yorkshire will be forever ingrained in my heart, I make no apology when David Whetstone from the Journal wrote some years ago;"You feel that if Ashley Jackson were cut in half – God forbid – you would find the word “Yorkshire” running through him like a stick of rock" for he is correct I could no more remove Yorkshire from my soul than I could continue to live without my heart, for they are intertwined and I am blessed because of it.
"The end of the day, when all is calm" is a celebration of my 75th year with Castle Hill and Emley Moor in the distance but with the moorland farm protectively built in to the hillside it gives an insight into how far man has come in technology but yet where nature prevails the old ways are still the best
The late afternoon sun casts its final rays of burnt sienna across the valley leaving a deceptive feeling of warmth on the snow covered landscape it touches. But this is Yorkshire sunshine in the rain, blizzards on a sunny day ,weather that is often hard to read .....for this I am fortunate, for my enduring love affair with Yorkshire has enabled me to sense her moods and impending drama.
