With the timing and lighting just right, Singapore's Marina Bay looks beautiful - upside down or right side up!

Stunning: Towering skyscrapers are reflected in the calm water of Singapore's Marina Bay

The following amazing pictures of Singapore's iconic skyline reflected into the calm waters are the work of 33-year-old landscape designer, Vorrarit Anantsorrarak.

Vorrarit said, "My project started in December 2008 when I decided to do my first travelling to Japan... I saw the incredible site of the Osaka skyline reflected in the water and used my camera to capture the moment... After that trip I became addicted and have taken pictures in Thailand, Singapore and even China."

You might be thinking that the image reflections must be the work of photoshop, but Vorrarit has insisted that his photos are all the result of his skill and timing.

He continued, "I love all the lights and vivid colours you can see in man-made structures... The reflections merge the buildings into natural form which reveals a different side to them... I sometimes flip my pictures over and try to make people guess which images is real and which is the reflection."

Nice! BTW, a friend of mine pointed me to your blog. I was asking for leads on people to invite to a preview session for the Singapore Memory Project. I saw this post and it would be perfect for sharing on the iRememberSG FB page. Will do so right now. thanks!
