LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A picture of the St. Joseph North Pier Lighthouse will be featured in the 2013 Pure Michigan Travel Guide after winning the Pure Michigan Moments Photo Contest.

The winner was taken by Sean Chess of Coldwater. It was chosen from more than 3,300 entries submitted through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Submissions ranged from landscapes to family portraits and featured scenes and destinations across the state.

George Zimmerman is vice president of Travel Michigan, which is part of the Michigan Economic Development Corp. He says the Chess photo represents the natural beauty the state has to offer and was a favorite of online voters.
