A snowy lighthouse in Maine


2-6-14 Port Clyde1

Park the car, walk 25 yards, and you’re able to enjoy this view. Easily accessible, this unique and striking lighthouse can be found guarding the rocky Maine coast just below the town of Thomaston. It protects those who depend on the ocean for their livelihood and call the working harbor of Port Clyde their home. A recent snowstorm had blanketed the landscape with about 8-10 inches of fresh powder, so I decided to stop off for a brief visit to admire what has become a familiar view. I was the first person to leave tracks in the broad expanse of snow, and with the cool ocean breeze and the sparkling blue sky laid out before me, I breathed in deeply to fully appreciate a scene magically transformed by winter’s grip.

    Nice to see such pristine snow in these shots. My visits to this light have all been in warmer weather. This first time I went here, I thought it was a little boring. But over the years this has become a favorite spot. Good morning light, very nice sunsets, rocks, lobster boats…what more could you ask for?

      Dave… I think it’s such a unique structure, and when you add in the sea air and classic elements of the Maine coastline… what’s not to like?

      Thank you Lara. Here in Maine it gets cold enough for the snow to reach right down to the shore… sometimes the ocean even freezes!

      Thanks Brian… I really do appreciate the very kind words. Californiadventure was a pretty neat experience… glad you liked it.

I'd love to hear from you...
