In Helix park in Falkirk (Scotland) stand two unique sculptures of horses, called Kelpies. The structures were opened in April this year and were meant to revive the area and attract tourists to Falkirk. Kelpies stand by the canal connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with river Forth, and celebrate horse powered heritage of Scotland, as well as the power of water.
The photos in this post were taken by me, as I visited Falkirk last Thursday. The sculptures are quite amazing, but the surroundings – not so much. There’s a noisy highway just next to them, which is distracting and makes taking photos from their right side impossible (hey, this is important). There are also power lines going just behind the horses and through the whole Helix park, which kinda ruined some of the shots.
Sometimes you just have to admit that some things look better on photos than in reality!
