Singapore welcomed its very first UNESCO World Heritage Site 3 days ago on 5 July 2015. The 1859 Singapore Botanic Gardens joins a prestigious list and rose to the top amongst excellent company. It holds the honor of being the first botanic gardens in Asia to be listed on the converted world heritage list and only the third in the world; the other 2 being the Orto botanico di Padova in Italy and England's Royal Botanic Gardens. The Gardens joins the likes of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Cambodia's Angkor with its magnificent temples and China's Great Wall on the world heritage list.

I always remember my first excursion to the Gardens as a photography student where I saw the Gardens in new light holding onto my camera and taking in all the flora and fauna with my camera. It was also the place where I had my 1st in-depth education totaling 6 weeks of nature photography organized by the Nature Photographic Society of Singapore (NPSS) which hosted their classes there. It was also one of the locations I first tested my newly minted Infrared converted D90 Nikon DSLR as I needed the nice combination of tree, sky and structures coupled with the massive amounts of sunlight that Singapore is well known for.

Here is my small collection of photos taken at the Gardens over the course of my photographic journey:
till the next time, onto the world and beyond!
