The Falkirk Wheel

Taken on our recent holiday to Scotland. The Falkirk Wheel is the only rotating boat lift in the world, , it is such an imposing and interesting structure, this HDR vertical pano shows the scene from where we had lunch. The guide explained that like Kevin Costner, they built it and we came, what had been an elegant engineering solution to the problem of two canals being 35 metres of elevation apart gradually became a tourist site. We had a cool day anyway :)
