Silver Steeds

By mac
Not the Kelpies, but these could be prototypes for the final version. These were at the Falkirk Wheel. I took these images in 2009. Colour versions as well.
Another one finished up in Edinburgh as well. (V4)
The large sized Kelpies. The sculptures were designed by sculptor Andy Scott and were completed in October 2013. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse-powered heritage across Scotland. The sculptures were opened to the public in April 2014.

I like them all, and find the last one interesting. They are certainly magnificent in their own right.

The dark sky makes this set. The lead is my favourite, by a good margin.
