Photographer nickshepherd tells us about this March 23, 2011 image: Daffodils are regularly grown in South east Cornwall and I had watched this field begin to come to life a few weeks before I took the shot. Although the scale and colour of the daffodils is overwhelming, it does not always translate into a good photograph unless some form of focal point is available. Prior to taking the shot, I walked around the field and found some trees sitting on the horizon. With the ingredients in place, I took the shot the next day early in the morning when the light was softer. One thing that is “lost” in the shot was the wonderful scent from this particular species of daffodil…it was almost intoxicating!
