I may not be able to get into the Trinity River before the ice thaws, but here is an image from a snowstorm a couple of years ago of ducks on a pond out at the Trinity River Audubon Center here in Dallas. I like the muted, painterly quality of it . I try to avoid overlapping subjects, so I am glad each duck had some separation from the others when the one duck flapped.
Canon 1Ds Mark III. 200mm. ISO 800. f/10 @ 1/250 sec. +1 EV. On snowy scenes like this, you almost always have to overexpose at least one stop from the meter reading, otherwise the camera will want to make everything gray.
