Falkirk Wheel & the Kelpies

A couple of shots from visit over the past few years to Falkirk’s main attractions in central Scotland.

First of all we have the Falkirk Wheel ‘boat lift’ which was officially opened in 2002 to link the Forth & Clyde and Union canals…

And then we have just the one shot (for just now) of the more recently built ‘Kelpies’ in Helix Park which had opened in 2013 with the two 30m tall structures.  Both are seen here lit up on a cold January evening…

It is my intention soon again to return to both these attractions to see them both lit up at night to get some more photos.

Glasgow by Night (1)

As explained in my Night Photography post a few weeks back I enjoy taking pictures and working with the camera at night especially in Glasgow.  So I’ve decided to make another post with another collection of pictures from Glasgow during the night and posts like this is something I’d create a series of with the more pictures I take over time.

To start of with post we have a picture from the SSE Hydro & Armadillo lit up and reflecting on a very still River Clyde on a October evening:

Now into Glasgow Green where I have taken an exposure of the historic People’s Palace:

And finally back to the River Clyde with the Tidal Weir which can be found the edge of Glasgow Green as you near the City Centre:

Hopefully soon I’ll be able to create another post with further pictures with Glasgow at night as I have plenty of variety to choose from.
