Photographer's Note

Many people believe the Scottish people are not particularly healthy: they may eat too much fatty and sugary food, be overweight, drink too much and smoke. But every now and again one meets someone who breaks this rule.

This picture was taken two days ago while I was walking with friends along part of the Clyde Walkway, a pathway which is cared for by local councils and which allows walkers and cyclists to follow the River Clyde a distance of about 65 kilometres from the City of Glasgow upstream to the World heritage village of New Lanark.

And, as we walked along, we were passed by this sprightly runner, of at least seventy years of age, lean and looking very fit for his age. I liked the autumn colours along the pathway too.

ISO 800, 1/200 sec at f/4.5, focal length 70mm.
