The Magic Golden Hour when the Sun goes down at Punggol Reservoir and Punggol Beach

Top Picture : Punggol Reservoir at 7.49pm on 15 Jan 2012. F4, 1.3sec, ISO 800, 0 EV, Night Landscape Program .

Left Picture : Punggol Reservoir at 7.49pm on 15 Jan 2012. F3.5, 1sec, ISO 400, -0.3EV, White Balance – Shade.

Right Picture : Punggol Beach at 7.28pm on 15 Jan 2012. F11, 0.77sec, ISO 100, -0.7EV, White Balance – Shade.

I just realised these photos were all taken on the same evening on 15 Jan 2012. Writing down the specs so I can remember next time.

From Punggol Beach to Punggol Reservoir, it takes between 5 – 10 minutes if you cycle depending on traffic and your speed. After taking the sunset picture at Punggol Beach on that day, I lingered a bit buying a can of cold drink. No more sunset when I arrived at Punggol Reservoir but definitely not time wasted.

By the way, if you are keen to cycle, there is a kiosk for bicycle rental at Punggol Beach and Punggol Park. Since the sunrise is not too spectacular today, I spend the whole morning cycling from Punggol Promenade at Lorong Halus to Punggol Beach, Sengkang Riverside Park to Buangkok PCN, Punggol Park, Serangoon PCN and back again. The whole North Eastern Riverine Loop PCN. Easily done within 3 hours with plenty of stops in between. Have a lovely Sunday, everybody!

      Hi! I can’t remember the exact pricing. I think it is about $6 onwards for the 1st hour depending on what bike you are renting.
