Capturing a Kelpie

May 17, 2017


Capturing a Kelpie or mythical water horse is easier than you think if you head to Falkirk in Scotland.

In fact the heads of two giant Kelpies can be seen in the hub of the town’s Helix park. One with its head raised out of the water and the other with its head bending down towards the water.

I captured the latter reflected in the water of the Forth and Clyde canal which winds its way through the park.

Visitors to the 30′ tall Kelpies sculpted by Andy Scott can also enjoy miles of footpaths which lead to many places including the town’s other famous metal structure, the Falkirk Wheel.

Just remember to beware that the Kelpies do not capture you as according to legend they aim to lure people into the water to drown them!
