These colourful fishing boats are pictured on the Looe River, with East Looe in the background. A well-known fishing port and tourist attraction, fish landed at Looe will have been caught that very same day.

Pictured on a late winter's afternoon, East Looe dates from early medieval times. With more modern houses on the sloping hillside above, the town has a number of ancient buildings. It is an important fishing port and tourist destination.

The town of East Looe is an important fishing port and has a large fish market. The boats are all day boats, and the fish is therefore the freshest to be had.

This is one of two versions of this photograph, featuring a different fishing boat, but taken from the same vantage point. In the early evening at high tide a fishing boat returns to the harbour at Looe in Cornwall with its day's catch. All the fishing boats at Looe are "day boats", meaning they go out and come back the same day. This makes the fish the freshest it is possible to buy. Several restaurants in the town specialise in fish dishes.

The original photograph has now been tonemapped, using Photomatix. This has brought out the colours and reduced the shadows.
