Belle Isle Bridge and Detroit at Sunset


Belle Isle Bridge and Detroit at Sunset, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Click image to view larger. This bridge, the General Douglas MacArthur Bridge, crosses from mainland Detroit to Belle Isle. The buildings in Detroit are reflecting the setting sun in their windows. The Detroit River flows around Belle Isle. On one side is Detroit and the USA and on the other, Windsor and Canada. The green in the foreground is the point of Belle Isle and part of Detroit.

I have also posted a new autumn leaf, a red sugar maple leaf. When leaves turn red and fall, can snow be far behind? Aiee!

Mary, have you seen Belle Isle Bridge from above? Nice, isn't it? :)

I've seen it from the air several times--really cool. And this map (your link) shows where I took all the last pictures from, if you move the hand just slightly down and to the left on the small picture so you can see the point on the big picture. That's where I was when I took these.

What a striking photo. Great juxtaposition of the buildings, the bridge, and the bank of the river.
