Photographer's Note

6.15a.m. - It’s quite some time that I did not post any shots from Brunei and digging through my earlier folders I thought this might be interesting.

Jerudong Park is an amusement park and can be reached in just 20 minutes from the town centre by car. This park was officially opened on the 15 July 1994 and was launched to coincide with the Sultan’s 48th birthday. It spans an area of 104 hectares and filled with exciting games and rides to cater for all ages. Celebrities like Michael Jackson and Whitney Huston have made appearances at its amphitheatre attracting huge crowds not only from the locals but also from neighbouring countries. Initially entrance was free and visitors had only to join the queue to enjoy any of the facilities available. However, lately visitors are charged a nominal fee to enter the park and to enjoy the games and rides.
This crystal arch adorned the entrance to the park where the musical fountain is and is set in a roundabout. I was there one early morning just before sunrise to take park in a walkaton and took this shot. It was not very impressive but after a bit of PP ended up with this one. What I did was to just add a red graduated filter to boost the red colour.
