I love the brilliance of the foliage, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Further enhanced by the the early morning light hitting it head on, Ray.

Elle est très concentrée.
Ayush Basu: a Singapore, en cours d'exécution est grave.
In Singapore, running is a serious affair, Martine.
The green tress sure make a nice background.
Ayush Basu: I agree. Further enhanced by the the early morning light hitting it head on, Michael.
She has a very easy gate... nice colors in this!
Ayush Basu: I see what you mean and thank you for bringing my attention to it, Elizabeth.
Lovely colours indeed Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard.

They are concentrating hard
Ayush Basu: Some of them take it rather seriously, Chris.
It's making me want to get up and start running...like I always used to do in my younger years, Ayush. Now I just walk fast. HA!
Ayush Basu: You are walking very well indeed, Ginnie, as I noticed during our strolls through Gorinchem. Jogging/running is widespread in Singapore.

Running seems to be increasing in popularity all the time. "Park Runs" are very popular n=now and can attracted around 800 or so in my city. I like the big green canopy here offered by the tree.
Ayush Basu: It can get crazy at times in Singapore. One of the gold class marathons in December attracts runners in the range of tens of thousands if you add up all categories such as 10km, half and full marathons, Alan. Fort Canning, the venue of this run, is particularly leafy and has some towering trees.
So much money has been raised around the world by people running the marathon
Ayush Basu: Yes, Bill. In Singapore, there are about a hundred a year which is more than one every week. Not all of them are charity runs though.
A healthy pursuit Ayush.
Ayush Basu: You are absolutely right, Chad. And people get to choose what category they are comfortable with - ten km, half or full marathon. Some runs have a 6km category too.
The leaves are as bright as the smiles on the people 'not' running.
Ayush Basu: Fort Canning, the venue of this run, is particularly leafy and has some towering trees.

Always tricky to get an oncoming object in focus. Well done.
Ayush Basu: I briefly once used one of those lenses driven by a Ultrasonic motor and they perform much better. My general purpose lens has provided some tremendous service over the years but it does have some lag when it comes to action shots, especially if the light is low.

What vibrant greenery to be running through.
Ayush Basu: Fort Canning, the venue of this run, is particularly leafy and has some towering trees, Anne.

I love all the bright green in this picture. I hope to run a fund raising run of 5 km this Friday night...
Great picture.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much.
Good for you, Astrid. I wish you a fun time. I ran a marathon for environmental awareness in April and have another scheduled in September. I have to say I am not training as I should sad

You can see the effort, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I cannot remember now but I think this was close to the finish line, Lisl. And in warm, humid Singapore, any activity after fifteen minutes does require significant effort.
great shot full of colour Ayush... i love the stylized runner painted on their shirts....petersmile
Ayush Basu: SMU is one of the universities here in Singapore and I think they did the design of the shirts themselves. Thank you for the comment, Peter.
