Singapore Nature Landscape Photography – Kranji Marshlands
Kranji Marshlands is a Singapore nature landscape photography project was commissioned by a client for Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). The images were released for the press conference on the official opening day of Kranji Marshlands (February 2nd, 2016). Several trips had to be made in the week before to capture the beautiful sunrise. We also had to go at different timings to capture the best lighting in order to bring out the aesthetic angles of Singapore’s largest freshwater marshland. The purpose of the landscape photography images were meant to illustrate the architectural and landscaping design of the marshland.
Panorama landscape photography of Kranji Mashlands taken at the top of the Raptor Tower. We waited till the sun rose to be partially covered by the tree branches to get this shoot. The image was used as signboard on top of the Raptor Tower to show visitors the locations of various sites.(see image here).
A beautiful cloud formation at sunrise was reflected of the water at Reed crossing. The floating pontoons stretches across Reed crossing to allow visitors to enter Turut Woods from the Marsh Station.
