Totally crepuscular

Sunlight streams through fog and mist on a wooded hillside near Elkton in rural southwestern Oregon on Thursday, Dec. 29, 2016.

Wikipedia: Crepuscular rays
 (also known as sunbeamsAngel lightsSun rays or God rays), in atmospheric optics, are rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from the point in the sky where the sun is located. These rays, which stream through gaps in clouds (particularly stratocumulus) or between other objects, are columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed regions.

Fog fills a valley near Kellogg, Oregon.
