Singapore has many well recognized landmarks. One of the biggest eyecatcher, at least for me are the giant Supertrees in the gardens by the bay. Those “Supertrees are a steel structure in the shape of trees with a hight of up to 50 meters. The structures are grown over and used for breeding rare plants.
I remember back when I was a child and saw an image of those trees for the first time I just thought to myself “Those people must be completely out of their mind!” followed by admiration and the desire to see those trees with my own two eyes at some point. I don’t know why but projects like this which are completely over the top do fascinate me the most.
Fast-forward 11 years and I had the chance to see those “supertrees” with my own two eyes. The first time I saw the Trees was at lunchtime when I was strolling around in the “gardens by the bay” without my camera. But once I stood there I knew I had to come back once the sun set but with my camera.
And that’s exactly what I did. Unfortunately due to a tide time schedule I ended up with only 30 minutes at the gardens before I had to leave again because I had a date with the sky pool on the 57th floor of the marina bay sands 😉
Those are my favorite pictures I took that night.
