Marina Bay Sands

I have done many photos of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore during night time, therefore I want to share some day time photos as well. I usually stroll around the gardens at the Marina Bay Sands before sunset, thereafter I enjoy doing night scapes.

The Shard

The Shard is a 95-Storey building in London. I took this image from a ferry on river Thames, during mid day. Mid day is not always the best time to take photos, but luckily the clouds on that day helped to create a dramatic look.
