Pastel hues adorn our dawn skies
The netizen uploaded the stunning Twitter clip with a series of hashtags of ‘#sunrise’ and ‘#bukitpanjang’ at around 8am on Monday morning.
He had captured Sunday’s dawn skies on his iPad and stated that no filters were used.
You’ll be able to see the skies take on purplish hues for just a split second, as the hour-long sunrise is compressed into a 25-second timelapse.
Sun peeps out from the horizon
The next stage of the sunrise entails our skies switching gears to lay on the yellows and blues — turning into a fresh canvas for gold clouds streaking across the horizon.
The result is honestly spectacular. We also glimpse a hint of what’s to come — the dawn of a rising sun.
Dawn breaks with the sun’s ascent
When dawn is just about to break, you’ll observe that the warm glow of the morning sun breaks the horizon and begins its ascent above the HDB buildings.
The clouds appear to shift to accommodate the start of the spectacular main event.
A new dawn in Bukit Panjang
And then the moment we’ve all been waiting for occurs — a new dawn.
The early morning sun crests the horizon and completes a cycle that’s as old as time itself on Earth.
If that’s how a Bukit Panjang sunrise looks, Westies among us are lucky indeed to have caught it on camera.
