There's something wrong, which anyone who knows anything about kelpies should pick, in this iphone snap of a late afternoon walk through the bush after a downpour. The lowering sun in your face made everything all but monochrome and the wet forest floor glistened silver.

But kelpies never walk behind. They lead. She is always a few metres ahead, and I had to call her back to try, unsuccessfully, to capture that special moment when she walked through the light. She's facing  the wrong way.

Both your photograph and your word picture are radiant with mystery. That your kelpie is in the "wrong place" only adds to it.
