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 .

Miami Beach

5 05 2011

Miami Beach
During my 6 week trip of America I stopped in Miami for a couple of days . Miami was an interesting stop and seemed to have lots going on all the time .

I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the beach’s there . But I guess we are just spoilt for Beach’s here in Western Australia . On the plus side they did get some nice tropical weather and light there .

Was taken with Canon 5D MKII 24-70mm f2.8 USM L Lens and Lee Filters . Was a 6 image stitch .

Rottnest Island Australia Day

31 01 2010

The Basin

On Australia day headed down to North Fremantle boat lifters to catch the True North (Cruise ship ) to Rottnest Island with 100 other photographers .

The day involved various guest speakers , some lunch and drinks and a , little bit of time to go to shore and take some photos , The light wasnt the best over on Rotto but still took a couple of snaps any way . The top image was an 7 image stitch of the Basin and the bottom image was an 8 image stitch of Long Reach Bay (May be able to spot Clint in the bottom image if you look hard lol ) After we finished photographing head back to the boat for some more food and speech’s . All in all was a very nice way to spend Australia Day and good to put some faces to names  .

After that we headed back to the boat to head back to main land . Thanks to Christian for organizing  the day and thanks to Mark Stothard for the use of his very nice boat .
