Making the Most of a Cloudy Day

Grassy Dunes

Grassy Dunes

On the way back to San Francisco the sky was white all day.  I was lucky it did not rain but a few drops.  By a round about route I traveled to the Point Reys area, Muir Woods and finally, across the Golden Gate bridge.  My only hope is these do not look like the usual shots from those places.

  1. I love cloudy days, the light always is so much softer it allows for decent shooting right through the mid day that way. These are terrific

    • Nothing serious went wrong that day, but it took entirely too long to get from Napa to the coast and the weather did not make it any easier. Thank you for stopping by.

        • That sounds like the software developers when they say “it will be released when it is done.”

  17. “My only hope is these do not look like the usual shots from those places.”…hmmm, I ‘d say these are fabulous for being not the norml!!! The first shot is stark, but the textures of the grass with the clouds is awesome!!!
