Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 9 July 2014

Surrounded by sea and fish


A brace of heron's graced the rocks at Wherrytown this morning...


as the sun broke over the Bay...


workmen began the task of preparing for another influx of concrete...


overseen by Tom...


the merchant navy had a fleet of ships called the Blue Funnel line, now Newlyn has its own fleet of Blue Tops...


one of the biggest scallopers in the country graced the end of the new quay with its presence...


while barge and tug wait for water...


it was all inshore fish on the trawler end of the market for Wednesday's market...


with haddock, John Dory...


lemons...


and ray in abundance...


while at the other end of the building the Govenek of Ladram was the only net boat to land...


with much interest from the buyers at a time when europoean fish markets are flooded with fish as fine weather persists...


another big blonde keeps the boys smiling...


while the harbour is treated to a few Mandelbrot...


or "Rorsach" test type images...


in the Lighthouse Gallery in Penzance this month's 'Far West' is showing - with many works inspired by the coast of Penwith.
