When to go
You can photograph a similar perspective of Aspire Park during any month of the year. In the summer, it'll be extremely hot, so prepare accordingly.
The park is always striking to photograph, but during sunrise and sunset, the light will be at its best. This particular shot was taken at sunset.
I recommend avoiding midday because the sun will be very high and the colors and shadows won't be as dimensional.
Even though it's not an explicit rule, cameras (like a hybrid or DSLR) are not welcomed. To comply with security and avoid any issues, bring a compact camera or just take photos with your mobile phone.
A normal focal length lens (57mm) will be best at this spot. If your lens is too narrow or too wide, it could distort the image.
If you're visiting at sunset or sunrise, experiment with the way in which the sun shines through the trees.
Try to add silhouettes into your composition to breathe some life into the frame.
There's so much to do in the Aspire Zone! I recommend checking out the rest of the park so you can see all of the outdoor amenities.
You can also walk over to The Torch hotel or you can get some shopping done (and ride a Venice-style gondola!) at the Villaggio Mall.
