I would like others to tell me the difference between these sentences.

It was being a beautiful sunny day.
It was a beautiful sunny day.

    The participle being emphasizes the ongoing aspect of the thing spoken of. It is grammatical to speak of the day in this manner, but few native speakers would say that the day "was being sunny". Nov 26, 2018 at 11:18
