My favourite weather for shooting in the woods is fog, not just because it looks spooky, but because it simplifies backgrounds. Shooting against a backlight can achieve a similar effect as the dynamic range of the subject in shadow placed on Zone V whacks the background way in ZIX or ZX and you lose all detail. Ansel is still rocking it.
