The days leading up to Singapore’s National Day Parade (NDP) 2010 is getting lesser and the NDP 2010 rehearsals were getting into full swing. Today, I decided to start my journey from Suntec City, watching the mobile column from another junction across the road and watching the Presidential Gun Salute.
However, before crossing over to the other side of the junction, I saw the Guard of Honour Contingents, along with the State Flags and Colour Party Contingent. Therefore, decided to capture them in action first before walking to the other side of Suntec City, where the War Memorial Park is.
While waiting for action to kick-start, started snapping photos around the area, with the 25-pounder artillery guns lined up in a straight line, ready for the soldiers and commanders to march in, for the Presidential Gun Salute Ceremony. Once the action starts, the mobile column started moving into positions, I went busy capturing them, nice view from my position. Thereafter, I turned my attention to the 25-pounder artillery guns and waited for them to fire and it was really very loud ! Oh yeah, I managed to capture 1 of the 25-pounder artillery guns fire from the muzzle !
Once the Presidential Gun Salute was over, I walked over to the Esplanade Bridge and chose a different location from my previous week, the sky was really dull and my photos for the aerial air show wasn’t well captured too, well, would try again and improve. Planting myself to a point on the Esplanade Bridge, I prepared my tripod, took night sceneries of Marina Bay, Esplanade and Marina Bay Sands while waiting for fireworks to start.
The fireworks for NE Show 3 was bigger, higher, wider, longer and so much more than the previous week ! Glad that I didn’t miss this week’s fireworks ! Do check out my other photos of NDP 2010 Rehearsals on Flickr !
