PANORAMIC views of Belhaven Bay, taken over the course of a year are part of the ‘Belhaven, a Journey’ exhibition at the New Bleachingfield Centre in Dunbar.

“As an artist, growing up and living in Dunbar I have always been fascinated by the ever-changing panoramic expanse of sky and sea around Belhaven Bay,” said photographer Gordon Jenkinson.

“I wanted to try and capture this amazing place, to convey the diverse changes and moods that occur daily, through my camera’s lens rather than with paint.

“I started to visit Belhaven at various times during the day and night, starting in April 2011. I watched the tide timetables daily and began to understand the changes that occur with every ebb and flow of the tide.

“During the year I have taken many thousands of photographs and have short-listed 50 for the exhibition.”

The exhibition is on from Monday, July 23 to August 18.
