Out of 60 lighhouses in Maine "Cape Nettick" is the winner of the "most photographed" ones. Many, many people visit the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, also known as Nubble Light, in the southern town of York Beach, Maine..... Is impossible to count the clicks as tourists and locals alike wait, lenses poised, for clouds to position themselves perfectly and for Maine skies to dazzle with the hues of early morning gold, mid-day cobalt, sunset rose or the inky blue velvet of nightfall

Built in 1879, Cape Neddick is the southernmost of Maine's many lighthouses. It is also called Nubble Light, refering to the barran rocky island (the Nubble) on which it sits, just off shore. The 41 foot tower is constructed of cast iron plates lined with brick. Cape Neddick's fourth-order lens flashes red every six seconds, and is visible for 13 miles.

Cape Neddick is an extremely windy point, and viciously cold 100 mph winds caused problems with the flow of oil to the lamp for many years, until electricity came to the Nubble in 1938.
