    Make (photographic) hay while the day is gray.

    My thought process just shifts to smaller objects, where the soft light is an advantage.

    Two of my favorite photographers, Bernd and Hilla Becher , seem to shoot exclusively on overcast days. More of their work.

    Everyone has their own preferences, but for me overcast is almost as good as just before or just after the sun goes down. No intrusive shadow lines to deal with

    gray, overcast day = worlds largest softbox. What's not to love. Definately not high contrast but great for portraits with a reflector.

    Didn't Edward Weston say something about the variations of natural light and infinite possibilities? I acuatally prefer overcast skys when photographing people and...well, just about anything that doesn't incluse the sky. As somebody already said. Overcast skys are like God's giant softbox. And don't let a little rain silence your shutter either!

    I can only echo what everyone else has bought up. I live in the desert southwest and I wish we had more gray days.

    Regards

    Hey Paul you are about to get your wish. Gray for several days. We're socked in, up here in the North east corner of AZ.

    I was in Geen Valley over the weekend, the Santa Rita Mts were half covered in low clouds with shafts of sunlight peeking though. More rain later this week, looking forward to it. The folks who were flooded out are not.
