Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Northern lights over the Mount?


Landing at midnight...


the crew of the Ajax put ashore...


well over 200 boxes after...


only two days fishing...


using two-thirds of the fleet of nets they used only a year ago...


an indication as to just how much hake is now on the grounds...


meanwhile at the eastern end of the market it's Dover sole sorting time on the grading machine...


down the quay the sardine boat Asthore has just pumped ashore her night's work of fish...


and Mario has just tied up for the night after his latest crab trip...


with the only net fish on the market prices were strong this morning for the Ajax...


with monk making good money to...


even this late in the season the Imogen III ...


has filled up with JDs again...


with auctioneer Ian in fine form this morning...


keeping the buyers ringing round their customers for price checks between sales...


the Co-op is beginning to take shape after the disastrous fire caused it to be closed just before the Fish Festival...


early risers and jogger were treated to a stunning display of atmospherics this morning as the sun began to warm the morning skies...


giving the whole Bay a surreal pink glow...


for Tom to gaze over...


the last of the damage being repaired along the seafront...


before the heavy work continues to replace the huge granite blocks that were ripped from the promenade during February's storms last winter


strong modern graphic work alongside a Harold Harvey from the Newlyn School...


including a close-up of a major work from Fred Yates in his inimitable style.
