We spent a weekend with my parents in upstate New York. After a shower passed through, I had a chance to take some fern pictures. Many folks dread not having the sun shine. For a photographer, an overcast day can be a bonanza. When the sun is bright the shooting can be limited to a few hours of the day and only in a few directions. On a cloudy day, you can shoot all day long and point your camera just about anywhere you want.
