But, as always, Mother Nature has its own way of displaying its sense of art when you least expect it. My patience was rewarded with an incredible view towards the town’s direction.
Getting up close to look at the artistic sculptures made you appreciate the attention to details and the sweat sacrificed with it. It’s just beautiful. Using various techniques, I manage to get myself sturdy and made a few consecutive shots.
Since there are no manmade structures blocking or reflecting the strong rays from the sun, the entire sky would lit up with bright orange, pinkish-hues contrasting the blues in the sky.
I toast my wife for this wonderful romantic moment, and I finished the last of my champagne. It was then I caught the perfect moment of the sun peeking through the moody clouds above the horizon.
On one of the days when we’re at Maldives, it happens to be a staff appreciation day. It’s a day for everyone, including the village chief, to participate in showing appreciation to the team behind all the hard work and preparation they had done to ensure all guests are enjoying as much as they could.
Living in a city can frequently cause ourselves to feel a burnout. Once in a while, people travel around to get things off their mind, breathing the fresh air, meeting people and exploring new territories. I wanted to share this shot because it brought about a particular mood and feeling to it. Unlike the typical holiday photos you see, it contains no elements of buildings or houses, no traces of man-made structures or interferences.
You might be wondering. What’s this island that I’ve been to exactly? It should be fairly common to most of us in history, as it was previously used as a quarantine station back in the 19th century. This quarantine station was used for cholera cases that was detected among the immigrants in 1901 and much later, it was also used to quarantine victims of other diseases.
It was a group photo walk with the other fellow photographers out on a Saturday evening, and I was looking for a composition that is both interesting as well as within the dynamics of Sentosa’s landscape. While it would have been beautiful to just head straight to the edges to get the sunset with some cityscape, but this walk was meant to be within Sentosa’s compound to create interesting subjects.
A four-mast luxury tall ship anchored at RWS facing inward, with the horizon at the back. It was quite an astounding view to be able to see this magnificent ship right in front of me, as I waited for the blue hour. It wasn’t the perfect composition I was looking for obviously, but it will make do with Royal Albatross with a spectacular sunset – that’s what I thought.
