Below are views of Owls Head Lighthouse in the wake of the great “Blizzard of 2010” on December 26-27.

A new blanket of snow covered the Maine coast, and though the sun was shining bright after the storm’s departure, winds continued to gust around to 35-knots, lifting snow about the air in fitful fashion and sending daytime wind chills plummeting to single digits.

In the process, the conditions created a scene of wintertime splendor to behold around lighthouses like Owls Head, even if warm thoughts of lingering in the shadow of the tower were quickly carried away on the shoulders of a frosty wind.
