In an attempt to stay healthy and escape the craziness of the urban concrete jungle, chum D and I venture out to explore nature whenever we can afford the time. Being avid photographers, we went on the Southern Ridges Trails as we wanted to capture sunset from Henderson Waves, Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge at 36 metres above ground. The Southern Ridges comprises 10 km of green, open spaces that connect Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. We started our walk from the Marang Trail near HarbourFront train station, made our way up to Mount Faber, and finally roosted at Henderson Waves to wait for sunset.
