POTD: Problems of Scale

Problems of Scale Wilsall, Montana 2012

I guess it’s not really a problem but the scale of this image is misleading to me, even though I was the one who took the photo. This structure looks like it was made of something on the order of Popsicle sticks when in fact each of the vertical boards is eight to ten feet long, making the the total height of what you see here thirty to thirty-five feet. (Oh by the way, this is the side of a rather “naked” wooden grain elevator–one I’ve photographed before and may very well have posted an image of similar to this one some time ago. But I find it intriguing so don’t personally mind the potential repeat.)
