"Water" an Exhibition by Lesley Donald

 "Water" The Exhibition

"Water" is an exhibition of photographs by award-winning photographer Lesley Donald from North Queensferry. 

Having spent the last 34 years as a professional photographer, mostly of people and personalities she decided to concentrate on the construction of the new Queensferry Crossing as it took shape over the last couple of years.

Living with the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge on her doorstep it was a natural step forward to record the new crossing which became the inspiration for this exhibition.

The theme of water came to the fore when Lesley started taking photographs in the Western Isles, Orkney and the Inner Hebrides of seascapes and waterfalls.

Having worked as Prince Charles Photographer in Scotland and for various TV programmes she has included some of her pictures of The Prince and his sons in her exhibition, a retrospective of her work over a number of years.

Thank you to all that attended the exhibition. If you missed it, you can view the collection below and view the images in large by clicking on them. Prints are still available to purchase.
