Sunset at Lorong Halus Wetland


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!

Sunset at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Sunset Panorama at Pasir Ris Farmway 3

The lalang grass are growing in big patches across the empty field at Pasir Ris Farmway 3.

As I passed this road on my way to Pasir Ris Park in the morning, I had this idea that the lalangs would be aglow during sunset. True enough on my way home yesterday evening, they were ablazed in the sun’s golden glow.

I just wanted to see how the photos turn up with no editing done. Taken with an Olympus PL6 with the 14-40mm kit lens.

If you pass this area, remember to snap a few photos before the lalang grass are all gone.

Edge of Sunset and Twilight

Sungei Punggol

Red sky and blue twilight landscape at Punggol Reservoir – click for larger image

When sunset and twilight converge, you see the different colours of the sky – between red sky and the blue hue of twilight…..

When I first bought a DSLR with the kit lens, I couldn’t figure out why the focus ring keep whirling to focus whenever it was night or early morning scenery. It was only later I discover the importance of prime or fast lens or a lens with a wide aperture. The reason why the camera has a hard time to focus is because during low light conditions, there is not enough light to capture images.  So if you like to shoot early in the morning or evening, a lens with F2.8 aperture or even better F1.8 or F1.4 is a good investment. Don’t need to crank up the ISO too much, resulting in less grainy images.

For this picture, there was no light in forest. Need to use the distance lights on the far left horizon, press the shutter half way to focus, then re-compose. From the news report, this forest you see here will be a future nature park facing the Matilda estate in Punggol.

Enjoy the scenery as you see them now. Something is always changing. In the future , something else always come along. Have a greet weekend!

Serangoon Reservoir Sunset

Sunset at Serangoon Reservoir

Serangoon Reservoir on a quiet Friday evening

A quiet evening at Serangoon Reservoir……

I was there on Friday evening.  The birds were chirping, the water was still with the occasional ripples and the light slowly darkened to a soft golden glow in the distance.

It is rather crowded here during weekends, so if you want a quieter atmosphere, come during weekdays for a relaxing time. Enjoy the peace and quiet!

Have a great weekend!

Sunset Sequence at Serangoon Reservoir

For the most part, I had taken lots of sunrise pictures. Sunset photography – occasionally.

This is the sequence of sunset pictures taken while I was at the Serangoon Reservoir East Dam during the super moon evening this year. The left frame shows the Nature Walk section of Punggol Promenade while the right side shows the opposite edge of Coney Island Singapore. Watch how the light conditions change in a matter of minutes.

Some days I was initially disappointed when I see the clouds – mostly grey sky. Just lingering for a few minutes more at one location can turn out to be the best decision ever. Composition wise, I prefer the vertical versions because the intense colours are much more highlighted. The next morning, the sunrise was indeed spectacular.

Have a great weekend and Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all those celebrating!

Twilight at Pasir Gudang

Photo for the day – as seen from Punggol Beach – twilight at Pasir Gudang. Waited a while after sunset to get this view at 7.31pm. The lights had been switched on and reflected on the water while the blue sky still lingered and golden rays of sunlight still rested on the horizon. A few minutes passed and the night scene darken all too soon. Time to go. Have a great weekend, everybody!

Twilight : Between the Fence

Twilight - Shadows and Light Between the Fence

I found another location today I can take pictures of sunset where there were fewer people about. 7.30pm – the sun had set but the golden glow lingered on the horizon while the North Star blinked its shining brilliance. The fence was meant to be a leading line. Not quite a perfect composition though I hope to improve with time. With hindsight, if the star is placed on the upper left corner above the highest fence, it makes better symmetry.

What looked like behind the fence? Something like this.
