During my photography workshops, I’ll often hear photographers groan about shooting on overcast days. I try to enlighten them with a bit of learned “photo wisdom” over the years. As I like to say, “Shift your paradigm, photograph in all types of light and learn to see the wonder that is being expressed!”
This photo capture on an overcast day in Grand Canyon National Park is a perfect example. While two photographers standing near me complained because it wasn’t a sunshiny day, I chose to embrace the soft, enveloping light that was painting a tapestry of lovely muted colors and tones. I was able to capture a unique expression of the Grand Canyon that would not have been possible on a sunlit day. A new reveal of wonder . . . when we choose to see it.
