Spruce Flat Falls in Winter

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Several years ago Betsy and I hiked to Spruce Flat Falls in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains on a brisk February day.  There was as much ice as there was water on the falls, which made for a beautiful wintry photo.

As much as I love waterfalls in their free liquid state, I love them even more with a little winter freeze. Beautiful!

Welcome back, George! Wow, this is awesome! The water all just froze in mid fall!

Wonderful.
Would like to see it actually freezing and stopping the flow....

Uma excelente foto, George. Arrepiante, em que a água congelada perdeu a sua animação.

Oops. I made a goofy crack about you going outside to take pics in the cold, but now I can't find it.

Oh well... I'm glad you've got the fortitude to get out there and share those beautiful landscapes!
