That's why most cameras offer two preset WB for those conditions: Cloudy and Shade. The purpose of these settings is to remove the bluish cast caused by the shade by warming the image up quite a bit. If you look at the Kelvin scale, you see that sunny is around 5300K while cloudy is 6600K and shade around 7200K. Huge difference between those three settings.

Oooooh, OK. Learn something new everyday. Must try the Shade WB. Thanks!
