Night Photography on a Rainy Night

Mount Imbiah Battery Command Post
It's December 2015 and it seems Monsoon season has arrived here in Singapore with many raining for the past 2 weeks. Big downpours and thunderings. Last night I was in Sentosa with 2 other friends who joined me at Mount Imbiah Battery for a night photography session. It turned out to be a disappointing wet night. The above photo is one of 2 proper night photos we made before it started to rain. It stopped and we decided to carry on, as we proceed to the gun emplacement area to make this night photo – experimenting with light-drawing effect.

I'm not really into light-drawings and no harm doing it for fun sake. The twirling green light trail was created by my friend with a green color light stick. Pinkish-violet cellophane paper was used to light-paint the whole emplacement. Immediately after this is made, it started to rain again. We took shelter and waited but the rain got bigger.

While waiting for the rain to stop, we did some interesting light-drawings and here's one of the best ones after a few attempts.

As the rain begun to drizzle, we packed up and left the place quickly. Guess we have to come back on another date during the dry season for more night photographs.
