Nubble Light is just off the easternmost point of Cape Neddick in York, Maine. It’s one of the most-often photographed lighthouses in New England not only because of its beauty, but because it’s so easy to photograph. It’s located on a tiny island just off Sohier Park, which provides ample parking and a great view of the lighthouse. Visitors are not allowed on the island itself, which means that there’s no one wandering in front of the lighthouse cluttering up your shot, and nearly every photograph of the island and lighthouse looks picture-perfect.
