Warming up for a brand-new day

With 24 hours to discover Singapore, what would be the sights to see? The Straits Times Picture Desk partners with Leica to uncover unique moments in this weekly photo series.

It's 8.37am on a Friday - and morning exercise time at Bedok Reservoir.

Rainwater is collected via a network of rivers, canals and drains and channelled to 17 reservoirs.

This photograph was shot using the Leica SL mirrorless digital camera with the Leica APO-Vario-Elmarit-SL 90-280mm f/2.8-4 lens.
