POTD: Little Butte

Little Butte
Lake Mead, Nevada

The scale of this image is confusing to me, and I’m the one who took the photo. At first my eye tells me this is a large butte off in the distance; then I notice the brush growing around it which establishes it as just the small hunk of ground that it is. But as soon my eye travels back to concentrate on the butte itself, the scale jumps back to large again. Weird. I didn’t intend this to be one of my Little Landscape series of images but it perhaps should be.
