Melville, NY—Nikon named New York State as this year’s top spot for fall foliage photography. The results come after a national crowdsourced campaign on Nikon’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels. Community members submitted photos showing off their state’s best spots to photograph the seasonal experience.
