    No... Windows Phone Central isn't giving away a vacation getaway but rather I'm on vacation and getting away for a few days. To celebrate, we thought it was a good idea to giveaway a few things.

    We have the Otterbox Defender, Otterbox Communter and Amzer Shellster that was reviewed last month just lying around collecting dust. All three are fitted for the Nokia Lumia 900 and we're giving them away. All you need to do is go to this WPCentral Forums discussion and guess where the picture above was taken.

    You need to guess the City and State. "United States", "Alabama" and "on a street corner" won't count.

    And you need not worry if you don't carry a Lumia 900. In your guess, just note your choice of Windows Phone and you'll get a Gift Certificate to the Accessory Store so you can pick out a case for your Windows Phone of choice.

    Oh... and feel free to add your favorite vacation picture to the discussion.

    You'll have until August 9th at 5:00pm PST to submit your guesses. After that, we will randomly pick our winners from the correct answers. You will need to register to participate and make sure to note what Windows Phone you are currently using.

    Good luck everyone!

    Bursting everyone's bubble here, but the latitude and longitude are on the picture's properties. No wonder some people got this so fast. My guess was Malibu, but there's none of those freeways here!

    LOL. Yeah. I figured it out on my own, but when you save and then view properties you can see GPS information. And btw, nice titan!

    Sort of like that image of shoes in the lettuce at Burger King. Next time click "Remove personal information and properties."

    It looks like the picture was taken on the North East Corner of Gulf Shores Parkway and E. Fort Morgan Road In

    Gulf Shores, AL

    (I say all this because I have analyzed the picture all too much.. you can see the Walgreens from the picture and it is on the SE corner of that intersection).

    BTW, I'm rocking a Lumia 800!
