Singapore

15 03 2012

Singapore –

Well I’m back from my recent short trip to Singapore . I have to say Singapore is a lovely , clean city with so much in amazing architecture . We actually stayed in one of the unique buildings during our 4 night stop , which was the Marina Bay Sands . This building is billed as the world’s most expensive standalone casino property , valued at $8 billion, including cost of the prime land . The actual hotel building is three separate towers going up to 55 stories , with one of its main attractions on the top of the building the Sky Park which is oddly enough looks like a ship on the top of the three towers . The Skypark feature some of the most breath taking views of the Singapore skyline and also features several restaurants , clubs , bars , spas , viewing platforms and its main attraction the infinity pool over looking the city. The infinity pool is actually the largest elevated swimming pool in the world and is great way to cool down on the humid Singapore days .

Some of the other features of the property are  2,561 hotel rooms , a 1,300,000-square-foot convention-exhibition centre, the 800,000-square-foot shops” The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall “, a museum which is another unique building offering lots of photographic opportunities , two large theatres , seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino plus they put on the Southeast Asia largest lights and laser show every night . Over the stay at the Marina Bay sands was an unique and pleasant stay , besides the one little hiccup with electronic cards and the elevators . It also offers plenty of photographic opportunities of the Singapore city and buildings been a close walk around  .

Some of the other attractions we indulged in were a dinner on the Singapore High Flyer which is a   giant Ferris wheel which reaches 42 stories high, with a total height of 165 m (541 ft), making it the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world  . It has some amazing views from the top of the ride during sunset and night . Sentosa Island which feature amusement parks like Universal Studios and various restaurants , shops , golf courses , shows , and other attractions . We also went sight seeing through Singapore and Visited China Town and Little India . The food over in Singapore is some of the best in the world and we enjoyed several tasty dinners . One of the highlight restaurants was Sabai fine thai on the bay . Went shopping in Orchard Road which has something like 40 odd huge shopping centres , we spent half a day there and only went through 4 of them and got lost several times .

Overall we both had an enjoyable time in Singapore and found the city to be tourist friendly , easier to navigate with the train system and has many unique photographic opportunities with the interesting buildings and skyline . Would have like to spend longer and seen a few more sights and travelled out of the city a bit more however .

With photography news I managed to get a lot of shots in Singapore will have several more coming soon . I been busy with my photography as well been back website is just about ready to launch , dont forget to follow me on face book for a chance to win a 45″ limited edition Fuji Flex print at http://www.facebook.com/Kirkhillephotography .

Karijini
Karijini National Park WA is one of the largest national parks and arguably one of the most spectacular in the State.
Haunting in its rugged, red beauty and unbeatable for adventure, the park is famous for its sheer gorges, waterfalls and cool swimming holes . Located 1400 km North of the States capital city Perth it is an isolated haven to photograph the unspoilt nature .

Was taken with Canon 5D MKII 24-70mm f2.8 USM L Lens and Lee Filters . Was a 10 image stitch .

When I got back from America last week , I had a nice surprise , of  parcel waiting for me from Amsterdam .

And no its not what most people think a parcel from Amsterdam contained . It was a copy of a Danish Aurthur’s book who I had agreed to use my image of the Matilda Bay boat house as the cover .

The Aurthur name is Pia Juul and the book is called En Weg is Jij , the book is unfortantly in dutch but I have been told it is Thriller /murder /mystery novel .

Below is a snap shot of the covers .

Happy New year to every one , hope every one had a good Christmas break , I was working through it myself , but I did finally find a little bit of free time to go through some old images of mine .

This image of the Fremantle Warf was taken some time last year in 2009 , seem weird now writting 2010 will take me a few months to get used to it . Was a 7 image stitch taken on the 5DMKII .

Hopefully the weather improves a bit in Perth here for photos , its been clear blue skys for ages now , havent been able to go out any days recently and when theres been good weather been stuck at work lol .
