Nubble Light - Winter Night Greeting Card
This winter night greeting card features the legendary Nubble Light surrounded by snow. Nubble Light is more appropriately Cape Neddick Light Station. Its construction was completed in 1879. It's come to be known as Nubble Light because the rocky island where it's built off Cape Neddick is known as The Nubble. If this feels like the quintessential lighthouse to you, you would not be alone in feeling that. Nubble Light is likely the most photographed lighthouse in the world. Words like quaint definitely come to mind looking at the gingerbread keeper's house. The enclosed walkway between the house and light was built in 1911 and has an almost organic feel to it as it conforms to the landscape. I bet it was a welcome addition on a cold winter night such as the one pictured here, though!
Aside from the legendary status of this light what caught my attention was the red hue to the light. Very distinctive. Apparently the tower was also originally painted a dark red but has been white since 1902. The red glow is shown here not just in the sky above the island but reflected in the water off Cape Neddick, Maine.
I love lighthouses as a subject so it was a treat tackling such an iconic one. Lighthouses have a majesty regardless of the weather but I really wanted to go for a wintry night scene simply for the novelty of it. I think the result is striking. What captures your attention in this lighthouse art? Does it remind you of a winter visit to Cape Neddick? I hope you'll share what attracts you to the image on this Nubble Light greeting card.
