The Union Canal, close to Old Philpstoun, West Lothian, Scotland (looking West).

This 31.5 mile contour canal travels from The Falkirk Wheel to Edinburgh.

Popular features of this gentle lock-free waterway include the Avon, Almond and Slateford Aqueducts, which are among the finest in Britain.

You can just see the tops of the Philpstoun South Shale Bing (left of center). Refer to my Greendykes Bing shot for information about West Lothian’s bings.

Three bracketed JPGs converted to HDR in Photomatix.

    Super colours and composition Tom, a delight to the eyes, splendid work my friend.

  • We are very lucky here, there is so much open countryside and lots of wonderful places to explore.

    This is a beautiful shot Tom … the canal is amazing and so varied in all it’s length … I love the bit that you can access from the Den road – the wee road that joins the road from Glendevon to Abercorn school, it runs close by the railway line.

  • Yes, I know it, you can cross the estate from the Newton/Bo’ness road to the Linlithgow/Winchburgh road.
