Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong told a group of Association of South-east Asian Nations journalists earlier this month that social media is "one avenue which is growing in importance".

He has social media accounts because it reaches people he otherwise would not connect with, he said. But these accounts also show a different side to Mr Lee - that of an avid photographer.

He has been praised for his photography skills, with photos garnering an average of over a thousand likes each. Some even had more than 20,000 likes.

A Facebook user known as Eleanor Goh commented: "PM Lee, I think you can moonlight as a photographer. Your photography skills are really good!"

An Instagram user known as jtann said: "Mr PM, you really do have a very good eye for getting the best angles. Love all your (pictures)."
