The Esplande Roof got struck by lightning!

Last night, The Esplanade's thorny roof grew and expanded. Not all thorns expanded, but only a few of it. But it was enough to cause a horror among the locals. They thought they were in Sydney! I was lucky enough to capture it! Look how some thorns grew and curled up that it looked so much like Sydney's Opera House!



During the night, there was thunder and lighting and it rained the whole night.
The next morning at dawn, it seemed the lighting had struck off those huge thorns! Phew! The Esplanade is back in Singapore.




OK. It's theme day, and we are suppose to display a picture from a city other than your own.

These are incredible photographs. I wish. I wish I was there and had a personal guide to tour the place in person. Ha ha.
