It has been gray and cool with a little rain here, not the best for photography, so what can you photograph on a gray day? I was wondering the same thing when we were in Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Then I saw this Brown Pelican swimming. The pattern of the silvered sky reflections on the dark water reminded me of the patterns of the silvery feathers on the pelican's wings and body. A gray day Peli floating on silver leaves. Sometimes photography is about being aware of the composition in front of you, rather than wishing for what's not there.
