Blue Hour Falls On Singapore’s Skyline

Singapore Skyline at Blue Hour

You may have noticed I’ve been away for a while! Over the last six months I’ve been struggling to find the right balance between a new job, learning French, and keeping up with photography. I tend to throw myself into new things 100% with complete disregard for anything else, which can be both a blessing and a curse. I’m sure at least one other person out there also has this problem?!  Starting today I’m planning to resume posting here once a week. I hope I haven’t lost too many readers along the way!

I normally like to enjoy sunset and blue hour in a relaxed frame of mind, maybe picking one or two spots to set up the tripod and then just taking it easy for a while. But in Singapore my time was limited.

The hot, sticky humidity didn’t hold me back as I rushed around trying to get as many angles as possible in the one full evening I had set aside for photography. A thunderstorm approaching just out of shot was also great motivation to be quick on my feet!

This was one of the last shots I took of Singapore’s skyline before deciding it might be wise to find some cover before it was too late. There were still plenty of people around Marina Bay at the time, I’m guessing a lot of them got very wet that evening!

A Singapore Sunset At Marina Bay

Marina Bay Sands Sunset, Singapore

I just couldn’t resist this famous composition of the Helix Bridge and Marina Bay Sands while visiting Singapore at the weekend. Fortunately it was coupled with a fantastic sunset which lit up the clouds something special.

This viewing platform on the Helix Bridge is definitely one of the most well known spots for photography around Marina Bay. I had three other people setting up tripods around me when I took this shot! But it can be tricky to get a sharp image because the bridge bounces up and down as people walk across.

All of the architecture around the Marina Bay area of Singapore is a bit otherworldly. I often felt like I was walking through something from a sci-fi novel. This bridge looks like it could have been lifted straight from an alien spaceship!
