Lone jogger on a fire road in Tilden Regional Park, with San Pablo Dam and resevoir in the background.

My friend Richard recommended this as the best of the ones we shot that evening from Vollmer Peak, sparing you all another view of the Golden Gate Bridge : )

I particularly like the contrast between the bright, sunlit earthy tones in the foreground and the hazy, shadowed background. The jogger adds a sense of scale.

I think I may have croppped out the dam. The interest and colour is in the bottom half of the picture.

I wouldn't have even noticed the little tiny jogger if you hadn't mentioned it! Nice scene, love the golden light.

pretty scene. I like the color of the light and how it grazes the foreground hills as well as parts of the town.

Looks like a walker to me, and it adds "human interest" :)
