The Kelpies in silver
Hubby recently took part in a 5K run around Helix Park
and The Kelpies
. While obviously being there to support him *snort*, I mostly busied myself taking photos of these guys. I hadn’t yet visited at night, and they were every bit as spectacular as I’d imagined. While there are far more professional photos around, here are a selection of mine.
(My post Two Huge Horses And A Walk In The Park shows some daytime views of the area, and What Is A Kelpie, Anyway? explains the origin of these sculptures’ unusual name.)

Note: Duke and Baron are the names of the Clydesdale horses who were the models for the Kelpie sculptures.
I love the way Duke and the man are looking at each other!
The runners fly past. Duke wonders what they are doing. 😉
Beautiful in blue. Goodnight, Kelpies.
