The Falkirk Tunnel and Canal by BusterBrownBB The Falkirk Tunnel and Canal by BusterBrownBB
A little bit of careful planning needed to capture this shot. Leaning over the guard-rail and hoping not to fall in :)

The Falkirk Tunnel. The Union Canal goes underground as it leaves Falkirk, passing through the Falkirk Tunnel - a staggering 633m long! In 1821 engineers cut a 690 yard tunnel under Prospect Hill. This involved blasting and digging through solid rock, and the 'dark tunnel' as it is known remains a marvel even in this high technology age.

I find the perspective strange, a world with no beginning and no wnd... the reflections are super great.
