My assignment was Bald eagles along the North Platte River in western Nebraska that would showcase a hoar-frost, ice and snow landscape.  It was early morning when I arrived in Nebraska.  The sky was overcast and gray.  I found eleven Bald eagles in a large cottonwood tree but they were too far away for me to make any image that would fit my criteria.

I waited for the sky to clear watching the birds, trying to sneak up on Canadian geese and just hanging out until the light was right to actually start working.

A few hours later the clouds began to break apart exposing blue sky.  I never did get to make images of Bald eagles.  They had moved down the river to other areas. But, I did get to make this image which details over a week of snow accumulation after a large storm effected the majority of the United States causing blackout and water supply issues in the southern states.
