Clarke Quay from across the river

You have to admit that Clarke Quay is beautiful.  From its complete restoration including the pastel-colored buildings to its picturesque location along the river with skyscrapers in the background, its a great place to while away an afternoon.  Or evening.

I recommend that you take a leisurely walk along the river from Clarke Quay all the way to the Fullerton Hotel just beyond Boat Quay.  Guessing that the distance is around 3-4 km (although it could be slightly longer).  Or you can take the river taxi which offers another perspective on a beautiful location.

All photos taken with a Leica M8 and Summicron 35mm f/2 lens.
