Singapore Skyline

On May 11, 2011, in Architecture, Gallery, People and Places, by Amiya

Singapore, a small island off the southern tip of Malay peninsula and close to the equator is one of the most developed countries in Asia and ranked 11 in Quality of life index internationally. The Central Area or Central Business District (CBD) contains the core financial and commercial districts. After decades of development, the CBD in Singapore has become an area with many tall office buildings spawned around the beautiful esplanade around the Singapore river. The skyline standing high with its colorful reflection on the river is breathtaking.

I started by trip from around Raffles place and made my trip towards Clark Quay via the Fullerton Hotel and Cavenagh Bridge. With my trip to India starting soon my 18-55 kit lens has got me in trouble already. The auto-focus has stopped working, although still in warranty I cannot give it for repair at this time, so I got little practice on manual focusing during this short excursion. The weather being really hot around this time, I couldn't get enough photos.
