Skywatch - Singapore River

DSC_4687
In the heart of Singapore, the Singapore River is a popular tourist attraction with modern skyscrapers, shophouses, bars and cafes found all around the river bank.

Shortly after the rain stopped, we took a leisurely stroll along Boat Quay and did some skywatching in the late evening.

Connecting Singapore’s cultural and commercial districts, the Cavenagh Bridge is one of the city’s oldest bridges as well as its first suspension bridge.

Some visitors paused to enjoy the solitude and lovely views. We could feel the cool breeze that greeted us at that moment which makes skywatching much more enjoyable.

  2. The skyscraper on the right hand side in the 1st photo seems to leaning towards the bridge, but in the 3rd photo its leaning away from the bridge?, very strange.

  16. @Windsmoke - I suppose that's due to a wide angle lens used to shoot the scene.

    LifeRambling, really nice series. I like the bride I think I need to visit Singapore again soon.
