Flowers in Black and White

Flowers Collage in Black and White

While bright colours attract attention, let’s go solemn with black and white this time.

Shadows and light, darkness and contrast. Just a personal preference, I like my black and white a little dark, broody and low key.

Black and white simplicity. Hopefully it showcase less is more in this collage.

Life could be simple if we set our mind to it….hmmm….

Flowers Collage


Flowers collage taken along Punggol Reservoir

Colourful flowers to brighten up your day. Spring is in the air with flowers blossoming everywhere.

Some days I don’t feel like doing any post editing. So these images are taken straight off the camera, just place them in the collage template.

Have a beautiful day!

Pasir Ris Park

Vertical panorama collage at Pasir Ris Park

I suppose the composition can fall under the rule of thirds.

Of the many composition style, I do love the leading lines composition. Just follow the lines, wherever that may lead you.

Have you been to the mangrove boardwalk at Pasir Ris Park? If you have not, take a look, not many visitors there. A little greenery post for the weekend.

I am off for a trip, have a great weekend!

Stormy Sunrise

Some mornings, it is worth every effort to wake up early and greet the dawn.

See the storm clouds. Watch how the changing lights flicker like a light switch from grey to red to golden yellow. There is a reason why the Golden Hour is so special.

If you stay nearby, come see the morning while cycling, hiking or jogging at the North Eastern Riverine Loop Park Connector. Bright lights are not always on the eastern horizon. Look behind you on the western horizon and see the pinkish afterglow.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Storm Clouds and a Rainbow

Storm Clouds and a Rainbow

May is a good month for watching those storm clouds in Singapore. See how those cumulonimbus clouds form, change shapes, merge or simply dissipate are quite breathtaking.

Here are my photo adventure of watching those clouds yesterday.

From the middle section of Punggol Beach, on that red bridge, came across this view.

See that thunderstorm signboard? Yes, storms are very frequent here. This section only has one small shelter in the middle. Further up is the Marina Country Club. A bicycle comes very handy when you have to dash for cover.

By the way, the forest on the left side had been cut down to make way for more development. That is for another posting on another day.

Cycled further up and saw the storm clouds on another perspective.

Passed by the Marina Country Club, crossed the road and saw the storm clouds reflection at Punggol Reservoir.

The flats in the distance looked so small in comparison to the storm clouds.

After this view, I took a break and photographed flowers at the small garden there. Next instance when I looked up, hey, a rainbow!

A very faint rainbow but always nice to see one. That gigantic cumulonimbus clouds had changed shape again.

At this time, two boats came upstream. They split direction at this point. One turned left and this happen to be my favourite photo on that day. I waited for the boat to come into the frame, then, Snap!

The other boat moved further upstream.

Some of the storm clouds seemed to have grown smaller. Hmm, I guess no thunderstorm on that morning.

But it did rained later on. It is so amazing watching these clouds form, re-shape, merging and at times disengaging. I could stare at them for hours.

Here is an old posting on storms clouds posted in May 2012 North Eastern Riverine Loop (NERL) – Thunderstorm Warnings

It is thunderstorm season now. Get those cameras ready!  Have a great weekend!
