Photo: Racing horses

From this angle the horse sculptures look like they are lined up for the start of a race. Each horse is 14 feet (4.25 m.) high, was made from 50 sheets of aluminum and contains 7 miles of welding materials.

The sculpture is called Water Mark by Laura Haddad and Tom Drugan. During the few times a year when there is a lot of rain, water may cascade down the concrete slope between the sculptures.

The hose theme is appropriate because to the right of the sculptures is the McCormick Ranch Golf Course, located on the site of the former McCormick Arabian Ranch.

In the background of this photo is Mummy Mountain. If you enlarge the photo and look carefully, you will see that there are a few houses constructed high on Mummy Mountain. One of them used to be the winter home of Leona Helmsley.

This week we are showing photos of the subtle beauty of nature in Yosemite National Park on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

The do look like they are racing. Either that, or they are lined up for a dance routine, as their legs are all in the same position.
