Ulleswater, From Gowbarrow
Photographer: Ogle, Thomas
Medium: Photographic print
Ulleswater inspired William Wordsworth to write his most famous poem after he and his sister Dorothy discovered multitudes of wild daffodils growing along the lakeshore near Gowbarrow.
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
