The Kelpies 01

The Kelpies 01 - Clackmannan & Stirlingshire
Well my first ever visit to the Kelpies at the Helix park on the Forth and Clyde Canal, falkirk, Scotland.
I've been putting this off for a long time, I think ts the fact I've seen so many photos of them it kind of put me off going I like to try & produce a fine art image different from the normal which is incredibly difficult on a subject like this but it's given me a few ideas so a return visit might be on the cards in different lighting conditions.
I have to say I'm not a big fan of sculptor Andy Scotts work but you cant ignore they are an impressive feet of engineering to see up close, I was also impressed to read that the sculptor used the mythical water horses as a starting point but also wanted to celebrate the horse’s role in industry and agriculture as well as the obvious association with the canals as tow horses.
