Er... then you might want to keep out of Admiralty Park, Sungei Budoh and Bukit Timah Hill. There are reports of sighting of snakes and in Sungei Budoh, there are sighting of wild dogs.

I was at Sungnei Buloh last weekend, I saw beware of alligator signs, too bad I didn't see one, would make a good photography subject provided I don't get eaten first :bsmilie:
Just a tip if you go to Sungei Buloh, park closes at 7 because it can really get dark in there. At 6.45 I decided to head back to the entrance and I was semi lost and found it like 7.30pm and it was really quite dark, so watch your time if you are planning to go there!

I was thinking of trying out the Zoo next.

The last time (a year ago), I saw alligator (small one that is) that are in the wetland, not on the ground I am walking. And saw huge number of wild dogs that are chasing everything that move in the wetland. Seriously I am very very worried that the dogs came out of the wetland and move up to the ground that we are... and at that time I don't have a monopod or tripod which I can use as a weapon.

(Note: Images taken are really really bad. This is the first time I use manual lens and so my focus are all over the place)

there are still places in sg with minimal photography done on it.
there are are many places that many have tread over but failed to see the images of interesting composition that you may find if you look harder.
there are places or buildings just because of the different ambient light, clouds or wind that it is worth visiting over and over again.
there are events or happenings that is as unique as it will be given a space-time...

Er... the railway got no snakes lar, only have dead dog being cut into half and squashed into pancake by train. :bsmilie:

And you can find people to go with you. Please don't be scared off, it is actually very rare to see one at Bt. Timah. Out of the 10 years I'd been there I only saw twice of the blue coral, and not more than 5 snake in total. I've also seen scorpions before. Just make sure you wear fully covered shoes. :bsmilie:

Anyway Bt. Timah is a good place to shoot mushrooms, especially at Dairy Farm at the right season. :)

John Shaw's books are quite good if you're into macro and/or nature photography. But then again he is also a Nikon user. :bsmilie:
