Silver Apples Of The Moon

Taken at night at Halfmoon Bay in Hazelwood on the shores of Lough Gill in Sligo under the light of a full moon.

Hazelwood famously features in Yeat's "The Song of Wandering Aengus":

"I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout."
