Nubble Light stands about 100 yards from the tip of Cape Neddick Point near York Beach, Maine. The lighthouse went into operation in 1879 and remains functional to this day. Between Thanksgiving and New Year, Holiday lights cover the structures on Nubble Island, creating much photogenic appeal. This image was made on a full moon evening, adding to the seasonal drama.
