Bélem Tower at Sunset

A nice sunset was forming as I made my way towards the Bélem Tower in Lisbon, Portugal after shooting the Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho Monument. Ever since I got the iPhone 4, I always like to take a shot on the iPhone in addition to taking a few on my “real” camera, a Nikon D7000. […]

Flying Into the Sunset

On a recent holiday to Spain and Portugal last year, my tour group arrived at the Belém Tower park at sunset after a city tour. I caught sight of the Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho Monument and a crescent moon which has just risen. I decided to capture the plane of the monument seemingly flying […]

Supermoon Redux

Last year, I set out to shoot the Supermoon but it was thwarted by the cloudy weather and I came home without any shots of it. This year, the Supermoon came by again and I decided to give it another go. However, irresponsible Indonesian farmers decided to use the ancient “Slash and burn” technique of […]

Calton Hill, Edinburgh

When I first arrived at Edinburgh, I was greeted by the typical greyish UK weather. I was kind of disappointed but since I was already there I decided to see what I can get out of it. I’ve seen many nice photographs taken from Calton Hill, so despite the appalling weather decided to go up […]

Golden Durian

Was at the Esplanade (also affectionately known among the locals as the “Durian” due to the spikes on the domes) before a concert when I saw the golden rays of the setting sun striking one of the domes. Took out the Panasonic LX-3 and grabbed a couple of shots before the light faded. To enhance […]
