Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 28 December 2016

The fleet sails from Newlyn on their final trips for 2016.


One of the last sunrises for 2016 makes a stroll along Penzance promenade worthwhile this morning...


with a few lucky houses across the Bay in Newlyn bathing in the glow...


despite a choppy onshore sea berating the shoreline...


three-cornered contrail...


over the beam trawler setting sail to land her first trip in 2017...


Guilvinec registered Itasca against the ice berth...


as the sun nears the horizon dep out in the bay...


more of the fleet show signs of life with lights...


aboard in readiness for the final trips of 2016...


which should see the port devoid of boats over the next couple of days...


the light always provides the opportunity for early morning photographers...


the Itasca's trawl doors stowed in their steaming position to stop them constantly beating the hull every time the boat rolls...


flying her Breton flag...


Curtiss senior makes fast the shore line of the Elisabeth Veronique in the ice berth...


dawn breaks down the quay...


making good use of harbour land once fully covered in trawl gear when there were around 25 trawlers in the port, not the nine that there are left now!
