Located at the easternmost tip of the island, Pasir Ris Beach (and the larger Pasir Ris Park), is a prime location for sunrise viewing in Singapore.

It's also a hot spot for many of Singapore's wildlife, with waterbirds (like the egret), reticulated pythons, and more.

Speaking to Mothership, Jayaprakash, who won National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year in 2017, said that he chanced upon the view while filming for an upcoming wildlife documentary.

He decided to take a few shots when he saw three people watching the sunrise.

According to Jayaprakash, it was taken around 7:20am.

Many netizens have since lauded the stunning capture, with some commenting that the dramatic shot looks like it's from a different planet.
