Twilight (Sunrise) @ Lower Seletar Reservoir (实里达蓄水池下段) #04

Drop by my Facebook Page www.facebook.com/yewyuee for the latest. Due to heavy time constraints, I’ve minimised all activities here but should you be interested, I’ve relegated most photographs to my Sets. I am currently refining my passion in the invisible spectrum (UV-VIS-NIR) while at the same time exploring the basics and challenge of wide-field astrophotography with a DSLR in a light polluted city.

Have a great life ahead!

Calm and peaceful in the mornings, Lower Seletar Reservoir Park is a pleasant place for leisure strolls or jogs. Benches along the edge of the reservoir offer great spots from which to enjoy the turquoise waters and the balmy breeze. A fishing jetty (maintained by PUB) extending from the park into the reservoir caters to the fishing enthusiasts.

As the day approaches the late afternoon, the reservoir park transforms into a water sports hub. Popular with kayaks and dragon-boating, the water teems with high energy amidst sporadic shouts of cheers.

Participating in such water activities is definitely the best way to enjoy the beautiful waters and scenery our reservoir has to offer. And in Lower Seletar Reservoir Park, the PA Water-Venture outlet provides a pleasant place for leisure kayak rentals.

The Active, Beautiful and Clean (ABC) Waters project can be found at the park too, and includes a Family Bay with a new performance stage, a water play area, a bioswale rain garden, as well as a Heritage Bridge. You will also find the Rowers' Bay at the other side of the reservoir too.

[the boring bits] The rising sun was very strong on this particular morning. Besides the usual benefits of the reverse NDs, I dabble a little into post processing. The saturation was beefed up by adding a "Velvia" film-like (tone curve) filter. To each his/her own, of course, but looking back I think this was overdone.
