Hong Kong!

Long time no writes…
Finally, I visited Hong Kong!
This was shot from Sky100 observation deck at Hong Kong International Commercial Center (100th floor, 393m above sea level).
May be not as high as Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, but it offers an amazing view.

Wat Pho, Bangkok

Known also as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, its official name is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan. The temple is also known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage.

Marina Bay, Singapore

It has been quite a long time since I am back from Singapore, but I could hardly find a moment to sort and process photos from that trip.
Below is the one that made a big time at Flickr, hitting the Explore almost immediately:

Singapore, Marina Bay

I used a 28mm Nikkor prime lens for this shot, at F8 and automatic shutter speed (happened to be 1,3 seconds, which gave water some smooth effect).
Some concrete block was used for fixing the camera, instead of the tripod.
The photo had been taken in a single RAW shot.


I have visited Singapore recently. Nice, green and busy city, would really love to see more of it. Having spent lived 4 years in Abu Dhabi, I am still amazed by amount of trees, bushes and grass growing literally everywhere. This time I had only got a couple of evenings to get out and explore it, while I spend almost all week in the office, with extra-long hours and no weekend. Well, at least the view was pleasant :-)
