Daffodils, April 1995

Don McPhee


This dramatic photograph, taken along the shores of Ullswater in the Lake District by Guardian photographer Don McPhee, captures a bank of spring daffodils against a backdrop of silhouetted trees and a lone figure on the shore. Along with Guardian writer David Ward, McPhee was covering the launch of a daffodil hotline – these were pre-internet days – whereby visitors could call and find out where the best blooms were. “Don had infinite patience,” Ward recalls. “He was lying on his front to take this photograph. He would do anything to get his shot.”
