Snowfall Transforms These Maine Lighthouses Into Breathtaking Wintry Scenes

Maine’s lighthouses are impressive beacons of beauty along our rocky coastline. Although these landmarks are popular tourist destinations in warmer months, the winter brings a whole new way to appreciate Maine’s gorgeous lighthouses.

Portland Head Light

Portland Head Light at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the United States. Snow on the roof of the caretaker’s house and on the rocky shoreline give photographers a new way to capture the beauty of the oldest lighthouse in Maine.


So after driving up to Portland Maine on Thursday night 1-3 inches of snow became officially 11.5 inches. The roads were completely unplowed and I was not prepared for that but I survived! Early in the morning all the roads were already plowed and I made my way to Portland Head Lighthouse. Absolutely incredible to see this place under fresh snow. ================================= Location: Portland, Maine Date: 30Dec2016 Camera: Canon 6d Lens: Canon 17-40 F4l Filter: N/A Shutter: 1/60 Iso: 100 Aperture : F11 ================================= #campoften #scenesofnewengland #newengland #mainelife #ilovemaine #visitmaine #lighthouse_world #lighthouse_captures #lighthouses_windmills_gs #lighthouse_lovers #scenicmaine #landscapestylesgf #landscape_captures #nature_wizards #nature_brilliance #naturelover_gr #nature_perfection #nature_sultans #natureonly #naturelove #natureshot #itsamazingoutthere #igersmaine #igersnewengland #eastcoastcreatives #maineisgorgeous #mainetheway #naturalmaine #exploremaine #livemaine
