I went out with my spotmeter a few weeks ago, and on a sunny day (not a reduced contrast overcast day) I had a somewhat hard time finding a scene with a DR of 13EV. It was pretty easy to find 11EV range. But a scene which all fit into a single lens FOV with 13EV range was not easy to find!
It may be easier to find than you think. Just point the camera directly into the sun, with a nearby backlit subject. The subject, of course, will be completely in its own shadow, whereas the sun will be as bright an object as you will ever find.
To properly expose the sun and the subject (so that the subject is not a silhouette) is easily more than 13 stops.....and this type of scene can be found anywhere, any time the sun is out. It can be when the sun is low in the sky at dawn or dusk, or when it is high above at midday. It's actually really easy to find these scenes that have a huge range of DR.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
