Cloudy Days in Black and White

The last few days have had some long stretches with heavily overcast skies. This can create some challenges for photography, as the decreased amount of light leads to slower shutter speeds and less contrast. One option to create interesting photos is to make the sky as light as possible and convert to black and white. This emphasizes shapes and makes the photos look a little less gloomy. Here are a few of my attempts at this process.

This is probably my best image of a Turkey Vulture to date.
