Dungeness Crab Season 2019

With the start of the new we finally saw the beginning of the Dungeness Crab season. For me that means lots of activity in the marina and plenty of interesting things to photograph. I was able to get out a couple of times so far this week between working my day job and the storms that have been rolling through the area. I’m also trying to get as much shooting done before I have to send off my camera for some much needed cleaning and repair work. All these photos are from the first week of crabbing here in Westport, WA.
