Falkirk Wheel, Scotland

by Ed OKeeffe in

Falkirk Wheel, Scotland With something like the Falkirk Wheel it is almost impossible to give you an idea of what it is like from a single photograph. Really, it would be one of those things best seen on video. But, for now this is Ed O'Keeffe Photography, not video and I take still pictures, so you will have to make do with this second picture I am publishing on the wheel. The first photo shows the Falkirk Wheel from below, on the other side of the canal looking towards where I am standing to take this image; to see the first photo please click here. Comparing the two photographs, this probably gives a better idea of what the boat lift does and how it works. You can see a red canal boat in the nearest caisson (boat container).
