    I moved away from Scotland over 8 years ago to take up a job in Portsmouth. Every year I take a week's holiday to visit my family up North and this time around we visited the Kelpies in Falkirk. Here is a selection of photos taken with my EM-1 with either the Panasonic 45-175mm or Panasonic 12-32, both of which I rate very highly as travel lenses.

    I guess you've learnt something new then, that kelpies aren't just our working dogs! Never mind, I've just learnt that too. :rolleyes: :wink:

    The oracle has spoken:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelpie

    I wondered about this since "Kelpie" clearly has a water connection.
