I set the WB in the camera to Daylight and adjust to taste when processing. I would probably click on a swan to set the WB, unless it was late afternoon light.

Not intended as a rebuttal, but this might be of interest to members in that regard:

In particular:

In the collage below you can see the effect on a normal daylight photo. On all four versions the white balance was set using the color picker on the same spot. The top left one has overcast set as preset, top right is set to incandescent. Bottom left has shade as the preset and the bottom right is fluorescent. As you can see it is evident that the preset has a big influence on the end result.
