Personal favs

Just two images converted to black and white from my Pulau Ubin trip that I like a lot. A study in symmetry and simplicty.

Pulau Ubin IR Images

Here's a series of IR image that was taken with my *istDL2 infrared modified camera during the Pentax outing to Pulau Ubin. It was a pretty hot day, which was physically sapping on the body but perfect conditions for IR shooting. Used the DA 18-55mm II for all the shots.

We went about by foot and came across this calm pond. Just a perfect and tranquil scene.
Plenty of coconuts too... as well as the friendly dogs that shadowed us most of the way.

A sweaty 30 minute walk from the ferry jetty and we reached Chek Jawa, a natural protected wetland. Definitely a must see when on the island.

Some solitary trees amidst the flat scene...

Pentax Outing to Pulau Ubin

The Pentax group decided to shoot at a small island on the eastern tip of Singapore called Pulau Ubin. The outing provided a very welcome change of scenery from the hustle and bustle urban jungle of the city to actual rustic kampung houses, unspoilt tropical vegetation, beaches and wetlands.

It was a very warm and humid day and the bright sun and plenty of walking made for a good physical workout for the group. Nonetheless there were photographic opportunites aplenty and I managed to get some very nice shots of animals, plants, general landscapes plus IR images too.
