Nikon's Fall Image Contest - Congratulations to the State of Michigan!

Nikon has determined through the collection of submitted images, that Michigan is this year's top spot to capture the colors of fall. Nikon used social media sites and invited everyone to share their most colorful images of their state.

The campaign received over 8000 submissions, and over 1600 of them were from the winning state; like the photo above from photog Sherry Johnston - click on the image to enlarge it to full-size.

Last year's winner, New York, was the runner-up this year followed by Pennsylvania and North Carolina tying for third. The hills, parks, and Great Lakes led the way for Michigan; while central park, the Adirondacks, vast landscapes, and beaches were also featured.

To view all of the submissions on Instagram and Twitter, search the hashtag #NikonFall followed by the state's abbreviation (e.g. #NikonFallMI). On Facebook, visit
