Singapore: The Helix Bridge Lights & Genetic Mutations

Sunset Sky over The Helix Bridge & Marina Bay Sands

No visit to the new Helix Bridge is complete without a walk down the stainless steel double-helix bridge at night. On the second day of opening, Sunday, I visited The Helix Bridge in day. Two days later, I re-visited The Helix Bridge, armed with my gears, joining a league of photographers who were there for the latest night-shoot opportunity.

[From Sunset into the Night]

As the sun goes down, the new sight turns into a grand display of lights

[The Helix Bridge: Night Mode]

The Helix Bridge is brilliant when admired from different angles.

The steel mesh and fritted glass canopies turn into a different and interesting feature.

The basic building blocks of the deoxyribonucleic acid:
Adenosine & Thymine pair; Cytosine & Guanine pair,
lines the floor of The Helix Bridge.

[The Ribose Rings]

The ribose (de-oxyribose to be exact) rings of the DNA were not left out either.
By night, these sugar moieties turns into a splash of colour display

[Genetic Mutations]
A series of fun with static lights in-motion.

In reality, the only lights in-motion are the running lights along the Helix.

The Helix Bridge,
will recreate the new visual impact of the Singapore Night Out! scene.
When the Marina Bay Sands is in full operation,
which probably is before the National Day Parade and Singapore Formula One Grand Prix,
the whole Marina Bay precinct will be a world spectacle!
