Spring has begun on Clingman's Dome 6643ft above sea level in the Great Smoky Mountains. The road was only open yesterday - closed again due to snow/ice. So a part of springtime at Clingman's is the ice melting which it was doing all over. There are small bluffs that are covered in ice. Some parts have icicles and in other places it just looks like miniature glaciers.
This photo was taken about 330ft below the peak where the sun had initiated a mass ice melt. Took several shots to get the drip. I think the drip itself could be more in focus, but I liked the photo overall.
