Netarts Bay

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go crabbing at Netarts Bay near Tillamook. The thing about crabbing is its dependent on the tides, and given the tidal conditions on this day I had to get up at 3:30 in the morning! At least that got us to Netarts before sunrise, so that gave me an opportunity to do a little photography while the traps got set. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed in the uninspiring sunrise light (for the 3:30am effort!) but at least the water was calm, and it was nice to have some sunny weather on the boat.

The picture is beautiful, but I'm sorry you got up so early and saw not quite what you wanted. Regards.

I once climbed a mountain in order to watch the sunrise - fog descended about 15 minutes before sunrise! Sometimes things don't work out as you hope. At least you could see the view.

It's always nice to be up before dawn, even if the sunrise doesn't cooperate.
