Highland cattle, Cumbria, 2004

Don McPhee


Donkeys, sheep, pit ponies … the great photographer Don McPhee captured them all in his beloved northern Britain during his long career with the Guardian. Although his portfolio encompasses virtually every subject, and he was especially interested in politics and trade union affairs, he repeatedly turned to the natural world in his photographs. This picture was taken on the northern edge of the Howgill fells, near Tebay, close to Kendal and the Yorkshire Dales national park. These highlandhorned cattle graze the lush grass around here, surrounded by dry stone walls and sweeping hills. Words: Hannah Booth
