Stargazing Merlion


Had a wonderful night making photographs in Sentosa last night and the weather was awesomely good in the day and very cooling at night with the full moon hanging high overhead, illuminating the beautiful night sky.

The legendary Merlion is a half lion half fish guardian of prosperity which personifies Singapore’s history as a port city. Standing at 37 meters tall, the lion depicts the folklore of Prince Sang Nila Utama’s rediscovery of lion (singa) and City (pura) while the fish tail symbolises ancient fishing village of Temasek, meaning “sea” in Javanese. Today, the majestic Merlion is a Singapore icon attracting visitors from all around the world.

This star trails photo is made up of thirty 1-minute long exposures and all were stacked in Photoshop using Dr. Russell Brown's Stack-a-matic.
