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”.

An offshore trip to Kukup Island for the Singapore Maritime Week photography competition. Not really related to the competition but this has been a favorite sunrise shot for me as the low tide at this area with some waters still in this bay and the vibrant sunrise together with such symmetrical reflections kept me standing in the waters for at least 10 minutes while others head for the breakwaters. My shoes were soaked though…

A project that will be ongoing to restore some of my best works from the day I started taking photos.

Filled or empty is the title. This shot is empty in a sense that there is no real distinct subject. Yet, the shot has the water element filled the entire foreground. Sunrise at Changi Beach CP6 always presents a different mood each time I went. Wonder how populated it is nowadays.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 at Changi Beach, Singapore, 2010.

This lone tree at Changi Beach has been one of a few icons of the place, pity that it has now collapsed as of last year in 2010 after withstanding decades of waves hitting it. I still remember the younger days even before the boardwalk was built, this place has been a fave spot for fishing and wading at low tide for shellfish and sea life. Till today, it’s still a charming place. Retreated and retired, as the name suggests, the lone tree has retired today and remains are what can be seen during retreated tides.

Been so engrossed with Singapore General Election 2011 news and updates that I have been neglecting this blog for almost a week. Back with one post from archives.

Archives_2005_to_Present #143 - No More Whale Hunting by kuantoh

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Albany, Western Australia, 2009.

This shot was taken from outside the Whale World in Albany. This whaling station ceased whaling operations and was decommissioned in 1978. It’s really amazing how such a big whale can be caught and transported back on this ship. Well, save the whales as they are decreasing in population, preserve the environment and ecohabitats. Love this shot for the way the whaling ship docks at the shores seemingly waiting for the next excursion but none was to come.

Paid a visit to Lower Seletar Reservoir. Since the wooden little jetty was replaced, it sort of lost that rustic feel. Nevertheless love the calm waters here. But what a sight we were in for with more and more photographers gathering in this area for morning sunrise. SG scapes really limited till nowadays alot of these places are heavily shot. Nonetheless, it’s always a challenge to shoot with limited angles and with people clustering in same position. Just need that special gap and moment. Lol…
