Taken a few years back when I was based in Singapore, this was an evening shot from the Marina Bay Sands area, looking over the CBD (Central Business District).

Taken a few years ago on my Noblex, a local Hong Kong boatman was collecting floating debris in Victoria Harbour. The building half finished in the back lefthand corner of the shot, is the International Commerce Centre. It has 108floors and is 484 m (1,588 ft) tall, the tallest building in Hong Kong. Indeed, when it was completed in 2011, it was the 4th tallest building in the world (now the 11th).
Amazing how quickly the Hong Kong skyline has changed in a relatively short period of time.

Taken a short while after sunset, during the blue hour (as opposed to the golden hour of sunset), this is a view of Singapore. The tall buildings are part of the CBD (Central Business District), where I used to work. In the foreground, the illuminated white is the ArtScience Museum.
My lasting memory of taking this image is that I recall it being an especially warm evening, even for Singapore.

Half an hour after the previous entry was taken, the Hong Kong skyline looked like this. Long exposure (16 seconds) has softened the water and sky. This was also taken from Kowloon, southwards towards Hong Kong island. Definitely one of my favourite places on earth.
Which cityscape would you photograph if you could choose anywhere to be?

Yesterday, we took a family outing to an island off the north eastern coast of Singapore called Pilau Ubin. It feels more akin to neighbouring Malaysia than the ultra-modern Singapore and as such, has a certain charm that is lost in this country’s modernity.
Unfortunately for us, being in the midst of the rainy season, the heavens opened as we were en route to the island from Changi. The shot above was from the pier we were deposited on at Pilau Ubin. Our boat was reversing out into the emerald green bay as the rain lashed the landscape.
After a very wet cycle ride around the island, we caught a boat back to the mainland in the early evening The rain had finally stopped and we were afforded a dramatic view of Pilau Ubin to the north, as the heavy rain clouds circled the seascape, in preparation for another storm.
All shots were taken on my Nokia 1020, which did a pretty decent job. However, I will definitely return on a less inclement day and take my camera kit as the views on the island are very contrasting to mainland Singapore.
