Sometimes there is a temptation to stay home after you look at the weather and see a stormy forecast. Nobody wants to be out in the rain but I always find that the edge of storms are where the best light and the most dramatic photos can be found. The other day it looked like a full day of rain but there was a short window first thing Sunday morning that looked like the sun would poke out its head for a while. Sure enough, I was near Pakenham's old stone bridge when the sun broke through the clouds just above the horizon and lit up the bridge. The result speaks for itself.
Bright sunny days with no clouds seem like a nice time to be out but they don't provide many opportunities for the best light. No stunning sunrise, no beautiuful sunset and no chance for dramatic clouds. Start to welcome changes in the weather and go look for your light!
