Chasing the Solar – Past the Little Crimson Dot

It’s near 2 years already and with most individuals nonetheless not with the ability to journey for leisure on account of Covid, we have now been discovering inventive methods to maintain our journey lust in test. One among these has been discovering areas in Singapore that are unspoilt and doesn’t appear like you’re inside a metropolis. So listed below are some locations which have been having fun with rising reputation for surreal dawn and sundown photographs, whereas we faux that these are scenes from one other nation.

The Lone Tree

This tree has been right here for years. It’s a well-liked spot for wedding ceremony {couples} to take their photographs. However then it has garnered renewed curiosity due to boredom from journey hungry folks. Truly, there are 2 timber within the space. Intelligent positioning of digicam angle simply makes it appear like it’s solely a single tree.

Positioned in Seletar Reservoir, this tree makes for a superb sundown photograph with 2 benches symmetrically positioned on both sides of it. It’s really very arduous to get a shot with out photo-bombers since everybody desires a shot throughout sundown.
I spotted that twilight pictures are extra dramatic since most guests would have left after sundown, and I may seize the final glow of sundown with the blue hour, plus the added bonus of Venus shining brightly.
And with a little bit of Photoshop magic, I’ve managed to mix morning, sundown and twilight pictures into one image.
Whereas the tree is fascinating, sundown reflecting off the reservoir can also be stunning.

Jalan Ulu Sembawang

A latest addition to locations to see dawn this 12 months due to the opening of a brand new park connector within the space. It’s not removed from the lone tree at Seletar Reservoir, however this place is unlikely to be right here for lengthy as the world might be redeveloped right into a housing property in future.

Lot’s of cyclists, joggers, Instagramers and photographers come right here to catch dawn. And if the morning is chilly sufficient, you might have morning mist, giving an ethereal look to your photographs. As luck would have it, I ended up with a cloudy dawn and no mist.
The timber that run alongside the park connector do give that tree lined avenue look. A misty morning would improve that look much more. There aren’t many locations in Singapore the place you could find such a scene.

‘Avatar’ Bushes

Not a very well-liked spot, as a result of it really lies in the midst of Singapore’s oldest cemetery referred to as Bukit Brown, and it’s fairly spooky when it’s darkish. Getting to those vine coated timber is sort of tough because it’s accessible by climbing or biking via a slender path with century previous tombstones simply a few toes away. I’d dare say most individuals will solely do dawn or day visits, I wouldn’t need to be right here at sundown strolling round an historical cemetery after the solar goes down.

So named as a result of it reminded somebody of alien timber from the film ‘Avatar’. It does appear like a scene from Avatar or Jurassic Park.
The trail to the ‘Avatar’ Bushes. The solar rays from the morning solar appears to be like enchanting right here, however round me had been a number of graves and tombstones.

The Final Fishing Village

I ponder who got here up with the title of this place. It’s precise title is Seletar Fishing Village. It’s probably not a village for the reason that residents don’t keep right here however solely spend the day to exit to fish from right here. The village itself just isn’t accessible to the general public. However folks come to the world beside the village for sundown views which look sort of mysterious as you possibly can see within the photographs under.

A bunch of timber protruding of the ocean with sundown appears to be like fairly inventive. And relying on the tide, you might find yourself with a special look to your photographs. I occurred to be there throughout excessive tide the place the timber had been partially submerged.
Cautious framing and lengthy publicity allowed for a extra dreamy look, for the reason that cloudy sundown wasn’t nice on that day.

Raffles Marina Lighthouse

Positioned within the far west of Singapore close to the Tuas Causeway to Malaysia is Raffles Marina. Right here you could find the one lighthouse that’s accessible to the general public. Perhaps it was helpful as soon as, however now with the close by Tuas Immigration heart so brightly lit at evening, this lighthouse appears to be fairly redundant. But it surely nonetheless makes for a really fairly scene throughout sundown.

Sundown is the perfect time to go to Raffles Marina if you find yourself rewarded with the setting solar. It additionally offers off a vibe like you aren’t in Singapore.
Clearly, I wasn’t the one one with the identical thought. Vacationers starting from locals to expats trapped in Singapore had been out in power regardless of the reasonably distant location of this place.
The night Solar setting over Forest Metropolis in Johor, Malaysia. This was purported to be a brand new metropolis enclave for wealthy Singaporeans and Mainland Chinese language however has fallen on arduous occasions first on account of home politics and now the pandemic.

So listed below are a few of the locations the place folks have been escaping to really feel like they’re on vacation whereas discovering one thing new about Singapore.
