During our trip to Singapore we discovered this gem right at the iconic Marina Bay coastline. In the middle of a nature park built on reclaimed land, underneath breathtaking structures made from steel and glass two artificial biotopes have been created. The image shows the 42 meters high artificial mountain as well as the observation path, which offers a breathtaking view of this spectacle of nature.
While visiting Singapore we were impressed by many things, but the Gardens by the Bay were the culmination of our tour. Daria and I went there during the daytime and then we waited for my favorite blue hour to take photos. The trees you see in the picture are illuminated when the sun goes down. Then the light-music show begins, with bright colors that change according to classical music pieces.
There is one peculiarity about this region of the world – the blue and golden hours are very short there. In other words, both sunset and sunrise are gone in 30 minutes. So, I had very short time in which to capture the perfect panoramic view of Singapore Marina. Regarding this particular image, I think I was very lucky taking it – after only one shot the golden light that you see was already gone.
The best view of the Singapore Bay is not from the famous Marina Bay Hotel as some would guess, but from the skyscrapers surrounding the bay itself. To have the perfect portrayal of this area, you will need to examine the Marina Bay Hotel and its unique architecture from the right perspective. The skyscraper where we stayed displayed a beautiful landscape on the last floor, which was a perfect spot to capture the bay.
The Helix Bridge in Singapore; a design inspired by human DNA. This was something very difficult for me to imagine, even before I had actually seen it. This connection of science and architecture stunned me, and I felt that I would not be able to return to Berlin without capturing this rare composition.
