The Magnificent Kelpies

Not a crafting post tonight but one I had to share with you.  On Saturday we went to visit the newly opened Helix Park and The Kelpies, just outside Glasgow.  This regeneration area is still a work-in-progress but the Kelpies are open for visitors and are definitely worth seeing.
 
Kelpies are mythical equine creatures who supposedly lived in water and these enormous structures stand guard at the point where two canals meet, surrounded by locks.  They stand about 30 metres tall and really are quite beautiful, taking on a very different feel depending on the light.  Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.
 



 
If you get the opportunity to visit The Kelpies, you won't be disappointed.
