Grey is beautiful too!

Just because you can't see the sun doesn't mean that there isn't beauty all around.

One morning last week the sky was looking bleak. The aftermath of stormy weather that only lifted before dawn.

I stopped mid-commute to take this picture.  Overcast skies have been a rarity this season, so when you see a scene like this, it's worth snapping.

Looking at the lakeshore, you'd never know that tucked in among all that greenery are hundreds of suburban homes, or that I walked ten feet from Lakeshore Road to snap that picture of Valois Bay.

Nice atmospheric shot. You are absolutely right, it doesn't always have to be bright blue skies. Enjoy your long weekend!

Lovely picture, grey overcast can be very lovely and give you some very intense pictures & I love the contrast.

Great picture.

I love it when the days start overcast then the clouds burn off to warm sunshine.

Sonja, Dar and Trobairitz, You guys have been having epic adventures that make my commuting adventures pale. Thanks for the kind words.
