Using Atmosphere to Express Mood
Just because the weather is turning bad doesn't mean you should put your camera away. The atmosphere that comes with bad weather can often make a unique and interesting image. This would include fog, mist, rain, snow, wind and storm clouds. Some of these conditions can be tricky for your camera to focus, and you may need to switch to manual focus. Also, make sure to keep yourself and your gear dry and warm. Use a lens hood and microfiber cloth to keep your lens dry, and a rain cover for your camera (create a DIY rain cover with a plastic freezer bag) and/or umbrella.
The fog hides all of the distractions behind this line of trees. You may get a sense of the quiet stillness that I felt when I was there.
