This is a shot of Lough Gill, Co Sligo taken from the waters edge in the Hazel woods. As well as being a very beautiful part of Ireland it is also very strongly associated with the poet and poetry of WB Yeats. The famous “Lake Isle of Innisfree” is just one of the twenty small islands dotted around the lake. Having stood on its gentle shores for just a few minutes I can see how Yeats drew so much inspiration from this spot. When I went to the woods to take this shot I had the words of Song Of Wandering Aengus rolling around my mind. It is a wonderful poem and I would encourage anyone to seek out the full version.
