This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Singapore, 2010.

A panorama stitch of 8 shots view from Marina Bay Sands Skypark. Weather was turning stormy and this was taken just before the arrival lightning sightings, signalling the near arrival of a thunderstorm. We are a country that never sleeps, full of light pollution. Sometimes, I just wish that there is a light free place in SG to see stars and the milky way, but alas, there is none. If u happen to know of such a place in SG, please share. Complete darkness in an area do not equate to conditions for stargazing, as the nearby lights can be so strong and overpowering that it lit up the skies within human range of sight. Sigh…

Another shot taken from the MBS Skypark. This shot simply shows how dense a concrete jungle Singapore is. Packed with HDBs and high rise amidst “forests” and the distant Indonesian mountains, this shot is a simple illustration of how packed and small country we are in.

A shot taken from the MBS Skypark before a storm. It’s never easy to run a business and moreover survive in Singapore due to the intense competition we face. Lack of natural resources, we can only depend on trade and industries to drive our economy. This 3 skycrapers sort of resemble a podium for the top 3 in any competitions. But with dark clouds and a gloomy economic outlook coming, it’s really hard to predict the outcome in the near future.

A chance to go up the skydeck on top of the Marina Bay Sands. The weather was really gloomy the time I was up there in the afternoon. As the sun began to set in the evening, the colors started to be more prominent and in the centre of this panoramic shot, we can see the rain showering in some parts of the island. The clouds shape the colors of the sunset to become somewhat like an eye. I call this Eye on the City.

A sunrise at Changi Beach CP6 yet again. This time with a very good condition pot at dawn just before sunrise. The exposure was just right with the help of a 3 stop GND. The sand formations sort of complement the pot, giving it more depth and the colors gives the overall feel of the pot shouting for attention against the sunrise.

This lone rock in the background should be the king of rocks along CBW. Standing at a height of about 2.3meters against the waves and winds, its a sight that you wont miss while strolling along the boardwalk. This was a sunrise shot, which was not really a popular sunrise location as it’s backlitting the big rock. However, it gives it a sense of majesty as it leads all the rocks “out at low tide”.

The sunset in town was extremely vibrant. This sudden burst of orangy red cast onto the clouds against Central at Clarke Quay was a sight to see. Complement this scene with a boat emerging from under the bridge. I call this emerging. One – Emerging of the boat. Two – Emerging of the clouds against Central lit up by the sun.
