Very much as the title says, when the weather is a little drab, no shape or texture in an overcast sky and it's winter, so most landscapes look muddy and dull.
What do you go out and shoot oarlock for?

Something like this:

I try not to let the outside conditions contain me, so I'll walk in my acreage and shoot something new.

After 30 years of Drab winters I moved to California, so for the three days of winter this year I shot some still life indoors. :P

Heya,

I get a lot of rainy, foggy days in Florida.

I still go out. You never know what you're going to see that might be worth capturing. I find these days to be best for long exposures too. I look around for old structures, interesting plant formations, flowers, old vehicles & farm equipment, whatever you think of. Sometimes, I just go to the coast. The rainy foggy coast is always interesting.

I stick my camera out the window and shoot the drab scenery. Today, no way as the scenery is blocked by a freakin blizzard.


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

I try to find a mass of water (dam, river etc) and slow the SS down (use big/little stopper) to get that milky view to image and convert to B&W

I was watching a B&H video in Youtube and the presenter mentioned not to include feature-less skies(drab), I can see that I don't have many shots that i like with blahh skies. You can still do scenic shots, just don't include the sky! I like macro so I actually look forward to overcast days as they provide the best light:)
