Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 7 November 2014

It's #FishyFriday and fish are far and few between as the winter weather begins to bite.


Black and blue, just some of the Sapphire's cuttlefish catch...


a little dollop of herrings grace the market...


and a solitary black bream...


while these line caught pollack would make perfect #FishyFriday suppers...


keeping a bulging eye on things, the pout or 'Bothack'...


lovely big lemons...


monster megs...


and, easily spotted, these huge plaice from the James R H...


all keep the buyers happy...


getting a heads-up from which fish?...


many fish have big mouths but few can match the John Dory's gaping jaw in relation to its body size...


before the sun puts in an appearance...


the light is a heavy blue...


so the sky provides a contrasting backdrop to the boats in the harbour...


like the Sapphire II waiting to take fuel...


and the crab boats waiting for the off...


at the back of the Mission looking towards the gaps...


Tom keeps an eye on the Bay...


as a mackerel boat heads back to port alongside the Trinity House boat Galatea...


Newlyn has most of the fleet in port owing to the poor weather...


as the last of the groundworks is completed by Cormac on the beach at Wherry Town...


the skies look as though they are about to open up...


hastening this cyclist on his way...


looking back to Newlyn from the Penzance prom.
