Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

The Kelpies are a popular subject on TE.

Falkirk in Scotland is home to The Kelpies, the largest equine sculpture in the world. Unveiled in April 2014, these 30-metre high horse-head sculptures are situated in Helix Park near the M9 Motorway and are a monument to Scotland’s horse-powered industrial heritage. Each Kelpie consists of 18,000 individual pieces.

But what are ‘kelpies’?

A kelpie is a shape-changing aquatic spirit of Scottish legend. Its name may derive from the Scottish Gaelic words ‘cailpeach’ or ‘colpach’, meaning heifer or colt. Kelpies are said to haunt rivers and streams, usually in the shape of a horse.

They have been shown many times on TE but I hope you will be happy to see them through my eyes.

We had quite a long walk from the car park, but that just added to the anticipation.

The Kelpies came into view, in the distance and I was keen to include this figure, walking towards us, almost as a contradiction to the eagerness that we felt, going in the opposite direction.

I will add a w/s of someone you may know here .

Have a good weekend, from a very, very wet N.W. England,
Bev :-)
