A year ago I spent an afternoon in the April woods. I had intended simply to take a walk -- no tripod, the time of day not being optimum for photographing. Yet, even without the wonderful even light of early morning or at dusk, when usually the winds are minimal, I had what I call a very good day. It helped that, by chance, there wasn't a lot of wind that day AND there was a lot to see. I got away with some fine moments.
I never knew about the way the wind increases along with the rising sun until I became a photographer. Watch the wind some early morning when, of course, there isn't a storm in progress.
