Falkirk Wheel

The Falkirk Wheel is a rotating boat lift near Bonnybridge in Scotland which connects the Forth and Clyde Canal to the Union Canal. It opened in 1992 and is the only rotating boat lift of it's kind in the world.

Needless to say I have visited this landmark several times since it has opened, primarily to take photographs. I have never been that satisfied with the photographs that I have taken.  I usually blame the weather, however, I was pleased with the shot below.

During my last trip back to Scotland I wasn't very happy about the amount of time I dedicated to taking photographs and only really went to two locations, The Falkirk Wheel and The Kelpies at the Helix Project.  From over two hundred shots I was only really happy with one or two. Only getting a couple of decent shots taught me the importance of regularly going out to take photographs. Hopefully I can rectify this in the coming months.
