Bad weather, good shots

Someone once said that "a beautiful sky with no clouds can be the worst enemy for your photos".

As the days slowly become shorter and shorter and temperatures drop, here comes a season in which it seems more difficult to take some photos.

For many of us, this is the time where the camera is idle for a long time and it can happen to opt to sit at the computer instead of going out to shoot, maybe because the weather outside is not so nice.

Yet in reality the bad weather, regardless of the season, is no enemy of photography.  

Cold, wind or rain can be a problem for the equipment and for the photographer but not for images: the harshness of the elements often creates interesting photo opportunities. 
So keep in mind that...there is no bad weather... there is only the wrong clothing! :-)
