the difference.......

.....between gloom and overcast. Gloom, for example, May grey and June gloom, grey, grey, grey. The sky, grey, the water, grey. The rocks, grey! And that is NOT a joke.

 

Overcast, color still hangs around. There is definition in the clouds. It is not a flat wall of grey! Details and colors. And, sometimes, if your lucky, a strip of bright at the horizon. This is overcast, and even though the sky did not light up in a blaze of color, there is still details and pleasing things to look at! :)

 

For this image, I used the Tiffen ND8, 3 stop filter. Which was enough for the overcast sunset. I sure do hope you enjoy!

 

For some reason, exit data did not go through, I think it is because I ,made some small changes in a new program, so, to address questions head on, this is a 5 second exposure and post processing was done in LightRoom.
