Waterfalls

Waterfalls typically require long exposures which require special considerations in photography. Longer exposures work best when the lighting is consistent across the entire capture, so diffuse light works best. Not only do clouds provide this dilute light but they also allow you to achieve a slower shutter speed even during the time of day most photographers pack their bag. Finally, in addition to the consistency in light, consistency in everything else in the frame needs to stay in place so the wind needs to be as minimal as possible.
