Execution Drive turned out to be much more fun than expected. Weather was super good. It was cloudy throughout the drive while cool breeze added to the scene made it much more refreshing. It was great meeting Seshendra for the first time and other India-Drive members, who never fall short of enthusiasm. It is always fun to discuss about travel and cars with like minded enthusiasts. After a few dropouts, Six cars in total have made it to the drive as we explored places around the Singur dam. Thank you guys for making the drive so eventful. Waiting for the pictures from fellow members. Stopover en-route Singur dam at a beautiful lush green arena We spent a while at the place and drove towards the circular well We reached Singur dam in no time Instead of driving towards the dam, we took a detour to explore this beautiful place You can find some of us climbing the rocks (PC: Akhil) Wide angle shot. (PC: Akhil) We captured this picture from the rock aisle Wide angle shot of the field (PC: Akhil) 18MM shot. Observe the difference between wide angle and 18MM. The Crew When road trip enthusiasts meet, What do they discuss? Profound discussion about travel and cars! Selfie time! We spent around 1 hour on this small land surrounded by water. Some of our members found some ruined temples from the rock aisle We started taking an unknown trail, which may have lead us to the temple area Pocket rocket Soon the trail became tough for low GC vehicles, Duster went ahead to recce the trail Vinith and Ashwin went in search of the path, but got back with bad news as there was no proper path ahead Our next destination, Singur dam Busy taking slow-motion videos We sat on the steps, contemplating whether to go on a speed ride or not. We decided to avoid it as we felt there was lack of proper safety equipment Our next stop-over, Singur bridge Singur Dam view from the bridge Line-up Closing picture of the day
