Today was a cold, gray day. Normally I don't take landscape pictures when the sky is that whitish, gray color, and texture-less...... you know the gray that wants to show up in my pictures as a blown sky. I love nice pretty blue skies with big fluffy clouds or even dark gray, stormy looking skies..... but the dull whitish gray skies ............. well I am not to excited about shooting those, even with hdr it is hard to get much life into the sky.
But today as I stood looking out the kitchen window washing dishes I realized I don't see those days as unattractive. No maybe they aren't my favorite color days but I still find beauty in them. I love to watch the layers of fog lift in the mountains and see the raindrops hanging on the branches.
So I braved the cold and fine, misty, rain and went out with my camera to challenge myself and see if I could capture some of the beauty I could see, even on a dull, cold, gray day. After all..... life has it's gray days too, yet I find I am always much happier if I look for, focus on, and embrace the beauty in the gray :)
