It’s the Sakura season and this year I’m privilege to be able to view these beautiful flowers right here in Singapore. Last year I flew to Taiwan to view the blooms during a weekend trip in February.
This year they were having a Sakura display at Garden at the bay. I took the opportunity to visit the place after dropping Tiger girl off at her kindergarten. I took nearly 250 shots during the hour long visit at the Flower Dome.
It was a great time for me experimenting with the different angles that a subject could be positioned and how the lighting bounces off on a given angle.
It is really interesting to note that many people were trying to snap pictures with their mobiles rather then traditional cameras. I gave up juggling between snapping pictures on my mobile and the camera as the mobile wasn’t able to give the depth in a picture as compared to a DSLR.
I enjoyed studying how different the different types of sakura flowers were and how delicate their flower petals were.
It really felt like being in Taiwan or Japan at the park itself looking at the flowers. I hope that next year I will be able to fly to Japan to see the Sakura during Spring.
Have you gone Sakura viewing before?
