photography and the supertrees

Seeing the Supertrees was perhaps my favourite part of visiting Singapore.  The supertrees are enormous, tree-like structures with huge, bare canopies that spread across the Gardens by the Bay. They seem futuristic and almost alien, yet they have their own austere beauty too.  Whatever your opinion, it's impossible to deny that they are fascinating.  I love experimenting with camera and photographing these incredible structures, wondering at the juxtaposition of nature and technology.

The Supertrees almost defy description, so I'm going to stop trying now, and just share a few of my photos from the afternoon.

P.S. For the first time in a long time, I felt the limit of my lenses.  I had a 28-75mm zoom with me that goes down to f/2.8 which I love very much, but I just couldn't get the wide angle I  craved.  I found this in Indonesia a couple of days later as well. I've been pondering investing in a wide-angle lens - does anyone use one?  Any thoughts/advice?  I'm thinking around the 10-22mm range.


  1. Stunning ~ that first photo is incredible!

  2. Love this. Never heard of or seen them before

  3. Had never heard of these and am now craving to take my two littles to run all along them!
