Singapore Botanic Gardens - Just Me

A rare Monday afternoon without much plans, I took a bus to Botanic Gardens with my camera.

The Gardens is quite empty since it was a weekday and nearly 4pm. The perfect time to take some scenery shots without the human clutter.

Was trying out to shoot with manual mode, it took me quite a few shots to get something presentable. But definitely a good chance to hone my skills.

First time I venture deeper into the Gardens and saw a few of the Heritage Trees. Majestic mature trees are the natural heritage of Singapore and serve as green landmarks of our Tropical Garden City.

Malayan Terminalia or Jelawi
At 47m, this tree is one of the tallest trees in the Gardens. Located at the junction of Liane Road and Lower Ring Road.

Tucked in a quiet corner of the Gardens is this cactus gardens. If I ever have my own garden, I would definitely have a cactus portion.
