Longrock to Newlyn and windswept

Another day of Sandblasting and windswept beaches led me, after shooting windsurfers out at Longrock, to seek shelter in the Harbour at Newlyn out of the wind for the last couple of hours of light..
The wind was once again battering along the coast, so much so that even the jackdaws sought shelter behind the rocks and Med gulls walked sloping into the wind..

Finally arriving at the Harbour and out of the wind it was nice to enjoy a relaxing walk around.. Myghal was unloading at the fish market and became my first shot in the harbour..

Around the end and up the pier where I encountered a lone Pipit staring out to sea.. probably thinking the same as me.. I’m staying put till the wind drops a bit :)

Of course walking up the far side of the Harbour you can’t help but be impressed at the trawlers with their beams looming into the skies backed by a setting sun.. in fact everything seems to reach skyward at this side of the harbour..

its always funny how when something catches your eye you suddenly awaken to lots of other things in similar settings.. the skyward reaching beams of the trawlers as I looked from the end of the pier looked like a massive statement of victory all lined up.. ominous perhaps?

and the light was dropping with the setting sun so I headed back to the van.. as I walked round the bottom I heard.. over here.. over here point the camera over here.. probably for the first time in my life I was on the receiving end of some scaffolders banter.. well it seemed rude not to so I pointed the camera..

and finally around by the fish market and a final shot in the soft fading light of our old friend the great northern diver who was happily fishing in the shallows
