When you visit a place and the light is as some say...boring or not interesting, it is good practice to switch to...creative mode. In your head that is, not in camera.
I mean, creating an image instead of capturing one. You need to think constructively and try to find elements in an image that you can enhance.
Here for example, I wanted to do something with this rock outcrop as I new that the playing of the waves around the rocks in combination with a slow shutter speed and a good grad filter to darken the sky right down, would be the ideal recipe to create an image of a place, where others would probably have walked away.
I have also created a small tutorial in my blog on how to go about when the light is...uninteresting, as others will say.

I have to agree with you Dimitri. Even if the light doesn't play nice, I still shoot it. :) Nice photo btw.
