The Helix Bridge ~ 螺旋桥

My trip to Marina Bay Sands ended in the late evening. Since it was breezy outside and I decided to make my way to see the Helix Bridge situated @Marina Bay. This new innovative landmark was officially opened on 24 April 2010.

As what I read in URA's website, this bridge is 280-metre long and constructed in a double helix structure. It is designed by a consortium comprising Australian architects - COX Group and engineers - ARUP, with Singapore-based Architects 61.

There are viewing platforms or "pods" where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Singapore city skyline and waterfront. Especially @night, when the bridge is lighted up, the view is even more gorgeous :) For those who still have not been to the Helix Bridge, I think you should. This is a new attraction and yet another unique landmark for the pro-photographers to capture their shots.

As my cam is quite new and I am trying out the night scene modes for my shoots. Phew! The photos turn out better than my previous cams ^.~
