A highlight of of my trip to Scotland last month was seeing the HUGE Kelpies, a steel installation located at The Helix between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Kelpies are mythical creatures that live in the water, the most famous of which is Nessie.
They are individually known as Duke and Baron after the two Clydesdales that were the life models for the sculptures.A second postcard shows the unfinished Kelpies. You can go inside the one with his head down (Duke). They each weigh 300 tonnes and are 30 metres high. Each one of their 990 steel panels is unique.
One regret was that it started raining during the tour - really raining, hard - so I didn't get enough photos. The other was that we didn't stay late enough to see them lit up at night. But, I wasn't the driver and an hour past dusk would have been far too long a wait.
