Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 21 August 2016

Dangerous weather, dangerous sea.


Heavy skies over Newlyn, like most of the country...



and big tides too...


mean the harbour is full of boats...


taking shelter from an unseasonable gale...


a deserted quay...


anyone with any sense would stay well clear of the water's edge - on a weekend that saw six people lose their lives in separate incidents - and the media still use terms like freak waves as if to lessen the blame on those who seem unaware of the dangers of the sea - hard to believe in this day and age.
