roiling clouds, Day 41

Most camera light meters will try and set things at middle gray (18 %).  As long as you understand this, you can figure out which area you want to be bright and which you do not.  If I were to take this photo and exposed on the Palace of Fine Arts, the clouds would have been blown out and not very interesting.  So, I exposed on the brighter part of the clouds in the upper right.
