I was inspired by a picture of the drying Eco-Lake on the Straits Times and decided to go down for some pictures. Since I just retired my aging Sony Cybershot HX9V with its latest successor, Sony Cybershot HX50v (a much upgraded version with 30x optical zoom), I might as well use this opportunity to test out the new camera. It is not actually ‘new’ because I got a used copy from Bhphotovideo.com. Given the quick technology refresh rate, I no longer buy new gadgets. Patience always yield steep discounts.
When I got there, the sight really stunned me. The prolonged dry spell really hit water bodies such as Eco-Lake quite badly.

Other than the much reduced lake, there was little sign (at least to my eyes) the flora and fauna are much affected… yet.
Anyway, hope the dry spell end soon. Rain rain.. please come back 🙂
