Not the Same Everyday

I almost didn’t get this photo had I lost the struggle to wake up early one Sunday morning! 😁

Background story: I noticed the sun was pretty well-aligned with the train tracks during my morning commute to work and I thought it might make an interesting photo. But I couldn’t do it but to wait till the weekend.

Besides looking out for such occasions, you could also use an app to tell how the sun is rising/setting on any particular day. Earth rotates at an inclined angle and (I think) this means the sun doesn’t really rise from the same place at all times. In Singapore, it seems to come from the southwest direction in the beginning of the year and slowly shifts to northwest as we approach June/July.

 

View from the Pinnacle

These are the views from the top of the award-winning building which features the world’s two longest sky gardens, on both the 26th and 50th floors. The Pinnacle@Duxton is a re-development of the Duxton Plain. The Duxton Plain was historically significant as the site of the first two ten-storey HDB blocks in the Tanjong Pagar area and they were amongst the oldest built by the HDB in the country.
