The Kelpies, Falkirk

I decided to revisit the Kelpies as I struggled to get both sculptures in on the 1st visit with my Canon EF 24-105mm F4 L IS lens on my Canon 1D MK III body. I have changed over to my Canon 7D for long exposure and night photography and I’m happier with the images than with the 1D. I’ll be getting rid of the 1D and getting another 7D as a backup.

Back to the Kelpies. My 1st visit was a recce and it was raining that morning. I couldn’t get the images I wanted and ended up going home slightly frustrated. Once I got the wide angle lens I thought it’s time for a revisit. I ended using different angle from my 1st visit and here’s the results of both visits. I’m very impressed with the Canon EFS 10-22mm after my 2nd use of it. Not a bad lens at all.

I’ll post up the 1st visit photos and then the wide angle lens visit below it.
The lights change colour every now and then. My 1st visit it went between blue, red, no internal and no external lighting. Second visit was more red and then no lighting.
