The Kelpies near Falkirk are huge 100ft tall metal sculptures created by Scottish artist Andy Scott. Named after the equine water spirits of ancient Scottish myth (but modelled on two beautiful Clydesdale horses) they rise majestically above the Forth and Clyde Canal and pay homage to the areas industrial and working past.
I’ve wanted to see these for ages, and they lived up to all my expectations:

Impressive sculptures, beautifully captured!
Thanks. Could really have done with a super wide angle lens to get some of the shots I was after, but 24mm is as wide as I’ve got.
All beautiful images, but the second is definitely my favourite.
Thanks, interesting choice. It’s an unusual angle of view, but I wonder if the sky is too busy on that one
That image stood out to me most because of the dark appearance of the metal sheets in the sculpture & how it contrasts with the sky. I don’t feel the same drama in the other images. Although, I think your images are always stunning ✨ 🙂
