Green Nature at McRitchie Reservoir

Green forest at McRitchie Reservoir

Solitude in the forest. Feast those tired eyes on something green and soothing. Let’s visit McRitchie Reservoir and walk along the boardwalk. Reflect our blessings and be thankful for each and every single day we have. Life is ever so precious.

Nature Serenity at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Canal

Peace and quiet – nature interlude at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Canal

If you just take the time to sit and stare, explore the little corners in your  surroundings, it is amazing what you may just discover.

Here it is, one of my favourite place to visit in the morning. The bushes are overgrown. There is no street light to illuminate the surroundings. Every now and then, flaps of wings could be heard when flock of birds take flight. Insects chirp and birds sing their merry songs. Somewhere in the distance, a woodpecker knocks continuously at its home. Butterflies flutter about and tiny beetles fight for food.

The clouds are always looking grey in the morning whenever I visit here. But my heart is enlighten to see beautiful nature and such a slow pace of life still exists here. Serenity not to be taken for granted for sure.

So wherever you are in the world, do take time to check out your neighbourhood. Who knows what you may just discover. 🙂

Sunset at Lorong Halus Wetland

sunset

Golden glow and pinkish sky over the Lorong  Halus Wetland bridge and Serangoon Reservoir

Yesterday, we had a beautiful sunset.

The landmark here is the red bridge that connects Lorong Halus Wetland to Punggol Promenade. Lots of wispy cirrus clouds which usually means lots of pinkish-red afterglow. To the left of the bridge, the light was a golden yellow while on the right side, pink reddish glow where the clouds were lit. Without a tripod, I was free to take many shots of the surrounding. The offset was the slightly grainy pictures but I would take that rather than blurry pictures.

A crescent moon was hovering over the clouds. If the sky is clear, may want to try your luck at photographing the stars.

Have a great weekend!

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!

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

Morning landscape with storm clouds at the North Eastern Riverine Loop Park Connector

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!
