The thermometer in my Southwest Harbor kitchen read -7° F when I left the house this morning to take pictures. Such cold weather is not uncommon here in January, but it's rare enough that I wanted to capture these frigid scenes while I had the chance. Mount Desert Island is a much different place in the winter than in the summer, but the scenery is equally spectacular. For the those who have never ventured here during this time of year, I hope these images will give you a sense of what it's like. Or better yet, maybe they'll entice you to brave the cold and plan a January vacation in Maine.
