This week, we set off on yet another trail-seeking adventure, this time around MacRitchie! The trails around MacRitchie are very popular, and having gone on a public holiday, we were not surprised at the throngs of people ambling along the man-made paths. Nevertheless, we intended to visit the famous MacRitchie TreeTop Walk, which required us to walk over 7 km! Prepared (with our usual mosquito repellent and bottles of water), we headed for the unique walking trail!
Starting the Trail
We started at the nearby carpark (you can check out the map to follow our journey: the trail we took is coloured orange), noticing the presence of a significant number of people enjoying the public holiday. We knew there would be loads of forestry and plants to capture, so we brought along our trusty Fujifilm X-T10 and the SLR 680 SE! We also had to pay particular attention to the timing, as the TreeTop Walk (which consists of a suspension bridge) was only open till 5pm (every day).
Reaching the TreeTop Walk
As usual, we present our ‘alternative’ images, taken with the Impossible Project I-1! On a side note, we noticed that the “Gen-2” Impossible Project film look somewhat better than the recent “Gen-3” version in terms of colour composition and development (even if the latter is faster in development). If you have any comments/observations on the differences, do leave a comment here!
As always, we enjoyed our trekking adventure on the MacRitchie trails, and visiting the TreeTop Walk was a very fulfilling experience! Trekking and taking photography combines two of our favourite activities, and we know that Singapore’s nature reserves offer more secrets for us to discover.
Leave a comment if you have any such ‘secret’ locations where we can take photography and immerse in creativity and fun!
Till next time,
