Cloud Dome, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

In the past couple of years a new visitor attraction has been built in Singapore, near the Marina Sands Bay Hotel.  Gardens by the Bay have two Eden Project style glazed domes and then an open garden which has some “living tree” structures which must be 50m tall with foliage grow up them and from which you can walk along a raised walkway.  The Cloud Dome is cool (probably around 17 degrees) and there is a waterfall and some raised walkways, like in this picture.  I would certainly recommend a visit for a few hours.  I went in the early evening and watched a light show at 19.45.  The Domes cost around $30 to visit.

Grand Canyon Sunset

What an incredible place, the Grand Canyon is.  I spent a lovely couple of hours watching the sunset over the canyon in the company of around 50 photographers, each hoping to get an original take on this view.  I just managed to get a standard postcard image.  But I’m happy that I had the opportunity to visit this site place which just fills you with awe.
