Cape Neddick’s Nubble Lighthouse in southeastern Maine is a famous American icon, and it’s easy to see why after taking a moment to soak in this brilliant shot by astrophotographer Adam Woodworth.

Woodworth used a blend of exposures to capture extra details in Nubble’s dazzling holiday light display: one at ISO 800 for 20 seconds, a second at ISO 400 for 60 seconds, and a third at ISO 400 for 10 seconds. He took the photo using a Nikon D810 camera outfitted with a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.

Here’s a different angle on the lighthouse hours later, illuminated by the early morning sun.
