Not a Bad Idea to Photograph on a Cloudy or Rainy Day

Do you like taking photographs when its cloudy or raining? Very likely you prefer shooting in favorable conditions. Of course, there are good reasons for doing so including safety reasons.

However, when the sun is not beating down on you, it is a great time to get photos without harsh shadows. It is also a great time to use that camera accessory many people ignore: the flash. Using fill-flash under cloudy conditions will give you very pleasing photographs.

The photos below may not be spectacular but I decided to feature them to show how pleasant a scene can look without the harsh shadows of bright sunlight.
