Struggle At The Top
At the top of Clingman's Dome, in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a lot of the evergreen trees have died, and more are still dying. I have heard it is partially due to acid rain, and partly from some kind of beetles. It would be a sad thing to lose all the trees on this mountain and possibly beyond. f16, 1/60 second, ISO 160, 60mm.
