When the weather forecast is partly cloudy with a 50% chance of rain, it's a good time to go looking for pictures. I don't like clear sunlight and blue skies, to look at or to photograh. But when the sky is stormy and it's about to rain, almost anything can take on a wonderful glowing presence. Cutting it close can get you drenched or rained out—though wonderful pictures can be made in the rain—but I find my success rate working right at the edge of the rain is better than when I try to find something in "fine weather."
