How does one get images like these.....?

Sorry, I know this is hardly D3-D1/D700-specific, but as a D700 user this is the forum I always post in and trust.

None of the photos below are mine, however I'd really like to achieve a similar effect, i.e. shafts of light shining down onto the forest floor. However, I've never managed this in any of my "forest" shots. What might I be doing wrong? Does it only work when the conditions are quite foggy?

I must be honest - I've never actually "seen" shafts of light quite these in forests I've been in. I'm wondering if it's something that the camera picks up even if the eye doesn't, or perhaps I've just never been in a forest in the right conditions?
