Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 1 December 2014

#EatMoreFish this week - there's plenty to chose from at your local wet fish shop - just ask!


Gary M was one of three netters to land trips of big white fish...


and hake on the market this morning...


along with several beam trawlers supplying cuttles...


monk tails...


and more hake...


fish are all over the ground at this time of year...


even a few congers made the inside of the cod end...


name this gleaming fish..


the handline boats...


are still mixing it with the bass on the hard rocky pinnacles...


while the Ajax made the first of two planned landings over this tide...


not a breath in the harbour at the 'dayning' of the day as they would say over in St Ives - dimpsy being the word for dusk - which is when the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon in the evening. At this time, objects are no longer distinguishable, and the horizon is no longer visible to the naked eye - ....


just as the lights come on in the Mission building...


the watch is being kept by Tom as a contrail hangs still in the sky some time after the airliner has disappeared over the horizon...


with just a couple of stars...


 still shining down on the Bay...


work continues along the prom to replace the granite stones after the winter storms, each one has its weight marked...


cementing in work starts at 6am while the weather is fine.
