Photo Quickie: Overcast Skies

Learn to appreciate and love overcast skies. The diffused light created by the cloud filled sky can make for increased color saturation in your nature or landscape photograph. It also offers you more flexibility for exposure settings to create more creative photographs.

The Colors of Evening on the Beach is a beautiful landscape photograph of the sun setting over the bay of Cape Hatteras as the waves washed ashore. The image was created with a long shutter speed to blur the movement of the clouds and waves. Then the image was enhanced in post production to reduces the remaining details of the scene leaving only the soft pastel colors of the sunset and the soft gradient flow of colors above and below the horizon line.
