The Surreal Appeal of the Falkirk Wheel

On how a remarkable piece of engineering bridges the eight story gap between two waterways. The only rotating boat lift of this type in the world, the Falkirk Wheel must be seen to be believed.

Connecting two separate water ways may seem, on paper, and easy objective to achieve.  What happens, though, when the two systems are twenty four meters apart?  Plus, the word apart here means in terms of height.  The solution?  An incredible rotating boat lift that looks like something from a steampunk movie.
