    Anything. Contrary to what a lot of people think, an overcast sky will give you better light than bright sunshine.

    Do you mean in a funny way, because it's nicer out? I do prefer sunny days as a person, but...
    In taking a photograph, bright sunshine sucks as a photographer. Exposing for both deep shadow and direct sun is nearly impossible, and the shadow borders are soooo harsh.

    I hear ya. Hey, I live in Rochester. Seattle may have more rain, but I think we are about tied when it comes to cloud cover. I'm giving Denver serious consideration. :p

    How do you prevent a horrible grainy mess in low light?

    Grain is just going to be based on film choice (and developer to some extent). A cloudy day shouldn't require a high enough speed film to make grain a problem.

    If you are talking about digital, then noise can be an issue. Exposing correctly goes a long way in keeping it at bay. A wide aperture will allow you to use a lower ISO.

    Check out the photos taken by our member SPAKO (use "Members" -> "Search") and see what all can be photographed when you cannot go outside to take nice sunny landscapes...
