By Kyle Mattson

We've enjoyed a great season of vibrant fall colors this fall, and our readers captured some great photos to match. In fact, we had so many we had to break the submissions into two galleries. So before you start thinking about raking all those leaves up, sit back and browse the submitted photos below and our other gallery here.

We'd also like to congratulate the three lucky winners who were randomly selected to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra performance of Sabor Latino: Shawn Sieg, Nan Mastie, and Ellen Meiselman.

Of the photos submitted we've selected the following as our favorite shots from local destinations. Vote for which one is your favorite or comment below for one that you think was more deserving.

#52 is the one I just can't believe is a photo taken from nature, and not someone's gilding of red fall leaves. Or something else man-made.

The last two on the right on the 4th row (by Holly J and Howdy_Holmes, respectively) are stunning.
