Moonbathing - Sugarloaf Mountain by Niki Purcell

The Great Sugarloaf (Ó Cualann also Beannach Mhór) is 4km west of Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow and is set apart from the Wicklow Mountains, with its conical shape and broody demeanour the Great Sugar Loaf makes an instant impression. It's barely 501 metres tall, but this plucky hill is one of Ireland's most iconic peaks. The Sugar Loaf may have the appearance of an extinct volcano; it is in contrast to the granite mountains to the south and west, a quartzite hill.  On a clear day you can see not only Dublin City and the Wicklow Mountains, but Snowdonia in Wales. Here Irish artist Niki Purcell has painted the Sugarloaf Mountain bathed in moonlight - always a stunning sight.
