Skywatch - Views from VivoCity

I'm sharing some skywatch photos taken from VivoCity in Singapore.

A great place to skywatch when it's not raining and I find that those huge giraffe-like cranes do a great job framing the sky.

Looking across the sea is the Sentosa Resort World. I remember in the good old days where we have to board a ferry to Sentosa but now there's a newly built boardwalk linking VivoCity to the island.

This is a tall skinny snowman looking across Sentosa. What a pleasant treat it was to see him greeted us at that moment. It is really thin in size which I think fits perfectly in a tight space.:)

  2. Nice shots as alwaays. I imagine that Singapore is a city area which have many high buildings. The city must be flourished.

  4. Fortunately you get clear, sunny skies when you were at Vivocity then. We are having a rainy season in Singapore.

  13. These are fascinating photos -- both of the cranes (both types) against the skyline and of the resort. That's the skinniest snowman I've ever seen.

  14. You got the best angles and locations in getting those shots. I wonder where you are when getting them, in a boat? Or in a far building using a long zoom lens!

  15. Hi Andrea,

    Glad you enjoyed my photos. These were taken from the wooden walkway outside VivoCity.

    i'm not a professional photographer so I usually stick with only one lens as I take a lot of photos and i don't want to be changing lens when traveling. At present I'm using Nikkor 18-105mm kit lens from my Nikon D90 with it. it gives me a nice balance of flexibility.

  17. Wooo! So much has changed around there! When we went to Sentosa, we caught a cable car there and back. It was so much fun. We really love the museum on the island and the train ride around it too. Your photos are just lovely. Isn't it disappointing when the weather doesn't play along.
