Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

Call to prayer




Heads bowed in earnest contemplation as high prices.....


  on a market floor almost devoid of fish...



concentrate the minds of the buyers this morning...



over a few boxes of mackerel...



bass...



and hake from the Ajax...



are swiftly sold and rushed from the market floor...



while the netter Silver Dawn is lit up...



 by the searchlights of the Berlewen laying astern of her...



the harbour remains full of boats...



waiting for the poor weather to pass.
