Sunset at Sentosa Beach of Singapore

Here is another Singapore landscape photography taken at Sentosa island. The coastline is marked by three lovely man-made beaches – Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. It is relatively save to swim around or involve any of water activities such as beach volleyball, beach soccer, cycling, rollerblading and kayaking.


Sentosa island is not only the hot spot for landscape photographers in Singapore but also favorite location for wedding couples and one of the most photographed sites. Search for website, there are many beautiful pictures taken around Singapore.

How to get the Sentosa island? It's easy.. The simplest way is by taking train of North-East line and alight at Habour Front Station. From there just straight up to 3rd level of ViVo City shopping mall, transfer to mono-rail, which is S$3(may vary) for return trip.

On the way to the beach, the mono rail will carry you to the very first station, Water Front Station, where you can take beautiful photos at Universal Studio. The next is Ambiah Station where the Merlion
(Singapore logo) is there. And the last stop is Beach Station, where the beautiful Sentosa is awaiting visitors. You can alight and board the mono rail again and again from station to station without any additional fees.

The tram ride is free at the point of writing this post and it run for two directions, one is to Siloso beach and the other route is to the Tanjong beach. After alighting from mono rail, the tram at the right is to Siloso and to the left is to Tanjong beach.

Singapore skyine

That was a very cloudy moment when I took this photo but fortunately manage to get this colorful sunset under the cloudy sky. The view was fantastic and like a painting. It started to rain after this. In fact I wanted to take the marina sands opposite the esplanade, the theater on the bay. But the atmosphere was not so attractive to photograph. If you are interested in sunset photography, travel to the tip of Singapore like East Coast or Changi Beach, this place is highly recommended.

I deliberately underexposed it by setting the exposure 1/3 down. This produced a far more desirable result with various and deeper colors.

I enjoy nature photography as well as sunset, sunrise, landscape and night photography. Before sunset the gradually changing light make interesting and beautiful sky as the sun sinks into the horizon. Taking sunset pictures could be challenging but also very rewarding experience. But, guys, do remember, the sun never sinks into the horizon in Singapore but instead its disappears behind the high rises. :)

Hope you enjoy reading my post and your Constructive Comments Make my Photographs Better.

Singapore Skyline

Although this is not the most photographed site in Singapore I love the color, evening sky and beautifully reflected buildings by the setting sun .If you are not residing in Singapore, probably you wouldn't know or have seen such residential sites but rather you would see those beautiful sites like Singapore river, Singapore night scene or the very famous Singapore eye.

Hope you enjoy my photos.

Sunset at Langkawi Beach Resort

Langkawi beach resort, at about 30 km off the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. One of the attractive sites for photographers especially who love sunset and landscape photography. It is a duty-free island (I love this). Popular beaches are Pantai Cenang, Pantai Tengah, Burau Bay, Pantai Kok, and Datai Bay. Pantai Cenang is my favorite beach and strongly recommend for landscape photographers. It is also great for seascape and sunset photography as well. It is a beautiful beach with seemingly unending stretches of fine white sand. Along the beach with the tall coconuts and casuarinas added the fantastic landscape. Pantai Kok is a peaceful and quiet beach with the backdrop of limestone hills.

How to go to Langkawi..

Tourists can reach the island via ferry from Kuala Perlis or by flight from Kuala Lumpur or even from Singapore there is a direct flight(Malaysia Airlines). Air Asia provides budget connections to the island.

The Langkawi International Airport is one of the 7 international airports in Malaysia and connects the island to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Penang, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Phuket and also Subang. On the island, there is only one main road runs through the whole island, so you won't be lost. Rental cars and taxis are available in Langkawi with a very reasonable price. Taxis do not run on meter, but instead drivers charge a flat rate which is quite "standardized" from point to point. It would be better ask the taxi fare before you board.

Langkawi Beach Resort

Langkawi is one of the famous beach resorts of Malaysia.

Australia holiday_Melbourne II and Great Ocean Road Adventure

This is the final destination, the Twelve Apostles. The Twelve Apostles, which are located along the spectacular Great Ocean Road are giant rock that rise majestically from the Southern Ocean and are the central feature of the rugged Port Campbell National Park.

I enjoyed the world's great coastal drives along the Great Ocean Road with its dramatic scenery of striking contrasts. It took about 5 hours drive from Melbourne CBD.

With the powerful seas, golden beaches, peaceful townships, giant cliffs and lush forests, the journey was great but the weather was not attracting.

I wish I had a beautiful day with bright blue sky. :(

Dramatic, powerful, dangerous and majestic. How can words describe?? Although it was named twelve Apostles, to day it has only 9 left. Long journey to get there. With this beautiful large shore every body get down here to take pictures. If I am not mistaken, there are over 150 stair cases to reach here.

Dramatic, powerful, dangerous and majestic. Since it is a soft rock, it is your own responsibility for any consequences. Of course I took the risk to take pictures. :) Scenery along the way to the twelve Apostles. I captured this while people are concentrating the soft rock and the Ocean.

Zoomed in to the soft rock.

Other view of the dramatic, powerful, dangerous and majestic soft rock. Thanks God, a got a little blue sky which I was hoping for the whole day.

Different perspective of the soft rock.

I love this simple shot of dramatic scene.

At Port Campbell. Scenery along the way to the twelve Apostles. Great Ocean Road. At Apollo Bay where we have our lunch. Dramatic, powerful, dangerous and majestic.

Scenery along the Great Ocean Road.

This forest is just beside our tea party, our breakfast, during the second stop. By the way I can't recall the name of the stop. Sorry guys..

This guy was shot with 18-200 mm, full zoom during our second stop on the way to the twelve Apostles.

These guys are taken at our second stop where we have our breakfast, in fact tea and local cake, which they call it laminton cake.

We are on the Great Ocean road and on the right is the hill where some people build their summer houses.

On the left is the powerful Ocean.

Rest room at Bell Beach.

It would be a beautiful shot if it it sunny.

This the very first stop at Bell Beach on the way to twelve Apostles.

Australia holiday_Sydney


Lamppost outside the Sydney Olympic stadium. All the light there are powered up by solar cell; you could see the solar panels in the picture.

Sydney Olympic stadium or Stadium Australia, currently known as ANZ Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in the Sydney Olympic Park. Sometimes it is referred to simply as the "Olympic Stadium", was completed in March 1999 at a cost of A$690 million to host the 2000 Summer Olympics.
The stadium was originally built to temporarily hold 110,000 spectators, making it the largest Olympic Stadium ever built as well as the largest stadium in Australia. But, for several reasons the actual capacity was reduced to 83,500 for a rectangular field and 81,500 for an oval field (making it the second largest stadium in Australia after the Melbourne Cricket Ground).
