Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Fog is a sure sign


Fog at sea is a sure sign summer is on the way as the sea warms up and meets those chilly northerly drafts...


all in good time, the Ygraine looks set to sail soon for her maiden netting voyage...


fog brings light or no wind as a rule...


this morning's boats landing to the market...


at Newlyn Harbour...


some small hits of John Dory...


and better hauls of Dovers...


and those dinner-plate sized flats...


but with no netters there are just a few kilos of hake...


a box of eight-leggers...


common practice on the smaller landings is to pop all the odd fish in a single box...


no chance of doing that with haddock as they are everywhere...


like this big tub gurnard...


more than enough to keep all the buyers happy this morning...


with the last few days seeing an upturn in the fortunes of the guys...


catching these elusive chaps...


just a few of these guys on the grounds now...


timeless shot of the Girl Pamela bound away for another day on the pots...


the number of yachts passing through the harbour continues to rise...


another bottom scrubbed and painted...


lurking in a sizeable piece of peat trawled up...


one small langoustine lodged in a crevice...


visiting beam trawler from Brixham, Catharina...


all painted up and set for this year's scallop season to begin...


and away across the Bay, the Mount of St Michael has disappeared from view!
