Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 24 August 2015

More muggy Monday morning rain!


Just the Ajax's hake on the market this morning...


these guys are rare enough on the market, then four come along...


good mackerel fishing over the weekend sees the mackerel fridge full to the brim with these marvellous fish...


while a big selection of beam trawl and top quality prime inshore fish filled the market at the grader end...


with marvellous monk...


and even more mackerel...


turbot don't come much bigger than this super specimen form the beam trawler Filadelfia...


the fridge looks like its the in place to be this morning...


Dr Dory has been in them again...


while Cefas Gary gives the lemons the once over...


before moving on to another shot of big prime flats...


outside things could be better weatherwise...


but it seems The Rain it Raineth as Lionel does his take ...


on that classic Stanhope Forbes painting...


doesn't look good for the crew on the Gallilee, isn't that a gangplank?...


this coming Sunday inside the fish market sees Keith and the Mission crew provide the annual Newlyn Blessing of the Fleet - starting at 6.30pm, the event will be livecast on the web for anyone with family or friends elsewhere in the world who cannot make the event in person...


there's a good set of nets for sale...


there's an excellent selection of Newlyn School and other paintings in a September sale at W.H. Lane's....


this study by Gyrth Russell, oil on board captures that high summer morning light...


and the kind of fishing activity still seen today - the Newlyn School artists were in some ways bloggers of their day!
