Black & white can also be a nice alternative when the light isn't ideal. Let's face it, the conditions aren't always going to be perfect. Would I have liked glowing clouds bursting with sun beams and maybe a rainbow or two? Of course.

In this case, the clouds had swallowed up a lot of that great light from my previous shot so I went to plan B.
