Tourist for the day ‘AKA New camera’

It’s been a while since my last post and while there have been loads to write about I haven’t felt the need to write about it but I am building up to sharing some images from the last three months on the road.

But something happened that I need to share, I got a new camera 😀

I’m still very much trying to get used to all the functions but wanted to share some of my first photographs with you.

This first one is from the Falkirk Wheel, the wheel is the first and only rotating boat lift that was completed in 2002 and build to replace the 11 locks that once linked the Forth and Clyde canal with the Union canal. It’s an impressive sight when a boat is loaded in the top gondola and is lowered 35 meters down.

The next photo is a new landmark called the Kelpies and it’s still under construction but  a very impressive sight when you walk up to the 30 meter monuments. The Kelpies mark the entrance of the Forth and Clyde canal.

And I included the second one to give a sense of scale to these marvellous looking creatures.

As always I welcome your comments and questions below 🙂

    Hej Poul. Tillykke med dit nye kamera 🙂 Billederne er rigtig gode, og illustrative. Jeg kan godt forstå, Falkirk Wheel er en stor turistattraktion, det er jo ligesom et overdimensioneret tivoli 😀
    Nej seriøst så er det rigtigt godt tænkt, og en imponerende ‘maskine’. The Kelpies gør det ikke mindre spændende.
    Jeg så det hele i funktion på Youtube – spændende!
    Mange hilsner til dig, Poul

      Hei Hanna,
      Takker, Det har jeg ønsket længe, nu mangler jag bare at blive bedre 🙂
      Det er sjovt, Jeg har boet i Skotland over 10 år og har kendt til Falkirk Wheel lige så længe men aldrig taget tid til at stoppe da jeg troede det var bare en anden turist attraction men det er faktisk ret genialt og interasandt.
      Jeg glæder mig til at se The Kelpies når de er færdige, nu er der ingen adgang på den side af kanalen da det er en stor rodet byggeplads.
      Ha en fantasisk aften.
      Knus, Poul
