Fantastic photo LIKE that
I wonder what this thing is maybe you can tell us abouts it.

You are looking at an elevated canal (an aquaduct if you like) supported by pillars with rings at the top for strength. The canal ends at a rotating boat lift which lowers a whole section of canal to a basin some 35m lower in height.
This is the Falkirk Wheel which joins the Union Canal to the Forth and Clyde Canal and takes only 4 minutes to transport boats up or down. The wheel is perfectly balanced, making use of Archimedes Principle, and requires a very small amout of power to operate.
Voted + Like from Sri Lanka :).
You can ignore my questions on previous pics. This is WILD! Thanks for the description.
