In response to The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: “Shine.”
“Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before?” Nancy Thanki asked on The Daily Post.
Indeed, I turned back and made a detour when I caught a glimpse of the water reflecting the sunlight in this photo. I needed to capture this image.
Then, I realised that a water canal could look so romantic, captivating, and mesmerising.
I was surprised at the sudden pop of beauty because I only there to catch some water-type Pokemon. I got a Golduck, Psyduck, Slowbro, and many Magikarps that day.
I stood rooted to that spot and breathed in that moment until the sun set completely.
This is one of two spots in Singapore that nearly guarantees crimson-violet sunsets on clear days. Crimson-violet sunsets depend highly on atmospheric conditions. A good angle, such as this, is another condition.
Apart from catching Pokemon, I was there with the intention to chance upon a crimson-violet sunset.
