I was new to Nebraska when this image was made in September of 2018.  I was exploring the areas surrounding Scottsbluff, NE when I found myself in Mitchell, NE.  It was cold.  I stopped for a coffee to warm myself at a small store in town and then decided to cut across south back toward HWY 92. I had been told that there was a Black-tailed prairie dog colony on that road and I wanted to see for myself.

As I approached the North Platte River bridge I could see the fog rising from the waters as the sun began to break on the horizon.  I had no idea that a large farm was just opposite the side of the river from where this image was made completely obscured by rising fog.  I parked, walked to the middle of the bridge, fingers freezing, and made about three images.
