Bell Smith Springs - "Ice Canyon"
Taking a break from my Smokies series to post one from this weekend.
I knew this ice would make the perfect foreground but I needed a good sunset to complete the photo. I waited around for what seemed like forever and it appeared to be a bust; the clouds were thin and puffy and had potential but they wouldn't light up. Winter sunsets are tricky to predict I've found, and just as I was about to pack up and leave it started glowing red for less than a minute, barely enough time to snap off a couple exposures. The light was dim enough that the ice naturally took on a very cool cast, which I like.
