photoblog image "Life is short, paddle hard"

"Life is short, paddle hard"

The motto of the canoe-kayak team of one of the educational institutions in Singapore. This shot was taken in the early hours of a Saturday. Mac Ritchie Park and Reservoir is a favourite spot for fitness conscious people of all sorts. Apart from the water sports, people also indulge in trail walking and running, cycling, yoga and aerobics.

You can't beat a bit of good exercise Ayush and having water to play with too.
Ayush Basu: bang on Chad, i always thought that exercises such as these activities provide more fun when compared to mindlessly doing repetitions at a gym
That is a very nice shot.

I see we share a boating theme but with a different emphasis. You capture the action well.
Ayush Basu: right after i took this shot, i turned around to find a monkey approaching me with a fixed stare. i am only glad i did not take additional time for this shot grin
