This morning it was all foggy and gray but this did not hold me from taking the car and drive to the forest. I was looking for some nice mist layers but ended up with some frozen bushes and trees. Because of the overcast weather the forest was full with different tints of gray light. I decided to take some movement shots. The moody atmosphere and different gray and brown tints of the forest worked out nicely.
For these kind of images you need trees that are skinny or have a nice shape. It is also important to look at the background and the sky because when you move your camera up or down these elements can have an impact on your image. Set your camera on a slow shutter speed so that you have some time to move your camera in the directions you like. Just take a couple of sample shots and then compose your composition.
