First view of The Kelpies


Which took me by surprise as I had forgotten they had arrived

Oh! They're horses! I thought they were Loch Ness monsters! Haha!

Strange and unusual!

How dramatic. I am sure there is a story behind them too. Are you going to share it?

Click on the link EC - the final words of the sentence below the picture.

Higher than The Angel of the North Cherie, so quite dramatic. When the place opens in April we'll be able to walk inside them too. They are made of a multitude of little metal plates with slits in them of various shapes. I'll be making a visit for more pictures from inside and out.

I look forward to seeing more detailed photographs of them on your future visits.

I am a fan of The Angel of the North ;-)

Thank you. How did I miss that - and they are stunning.

A fine photo caught by Margaret, by the way, as we passed at 50 mph (as slow as I could safely go with impatient motorway traffic behind) and I shouted, "Bloody hell, look! Get a photo of them! No, you hold it the other way round! Slide open the lens cover though! That button! Yes! Don't you remember? For goodness sake, you've done it before... Lower the window. What do you mean how?" So she did very well with the one chance for a shot that she had before some trees obscured the view amid that confusion. Perhaps it was just my excellent instruction.
