Rainy Day at Belle Isle

Scott Fountain

Scott Fountain at Belle Isle, Detroit, Michigan

Belle Isle is an island and a park that sits in the Detroit River between Detroit and Windsor, Canada, and this past June played host to the Detroit Grand Prix.  I was at the track on the Friday before the big race, which was primarily a practice day for the race teams.  Although the weather was terrible, I spent some time walking around the park and captured a few shots of the beautiful Scott Fountain.
