I think I could deal with an image like this (Ft. Lauderdale - in February)a lot longer before it would become depressing to me (lol).




When I see that picture I think "heat" and it immediately turns me off to it. (Not the picture itself, which is quite good!) I think this may be one reason I'm not a fan of palm trees: I associate them with a hot climate. Another reason I prefer cloudy days to sunny ones is due to my very sensitive eyes. I also prefer taking pictures on cloudy days, for the most part. Clouds are nature's soft box.

You sound like you'd love living in Scotland or Norway.

The only time I don't like sun is the rare occaision when I'm already sunburnt,
when I'd like to clean glass, or the rare chance there's a little too much glare in a particular direction.
I love wearing polarized-sunglasses though, so glare is almost a non-issue usually.
(which is why I can enjoy bare trees on sunny days )

I've actually considered both of those. But like I said, I do prefer clear skies at night. I imagine there aren't many (any?) places in the world where days are almost always cloudy and nights are usually clear.

Funny you should mention that...
(No, but Toronto might be close. )

We get a lot of "Lake Effect" cloud in Toronto.
Since Toronto is about 100 miles east of Lake Huron and winds are typically westerly,
mornings are often the sunniest time of day from mid-Autumn through Winter, (can be just a few minutes of sun )
tending to cloud over to "full overcast" between 9am to 12 pm,
but the the thick clouds often break up again shortly after sunset,
often giving us partly-cloudy night skies by 9pm or 10 pm.

Palm trees are cool to see on vacation, but I have no desire for them otherwise. Give me the deciduous and confiers of the north.

Took this pic at the park in winter-time....wouldnt be the same without bare trees!

That picture is kind of nice,
but images like that remind me of cold sooooo fierce
it feels like it's ripping the skin right off my face
(after 20+ minutes outdoors of course )
