With macro photography, the general idea is to make something small look big. Sometimes, though, Mother Nature likes to throw us a curve ball.
Ponderosa Pine trees are massive, ranging from 40-60 feet tall. However, height is relative. Here in Zion National Park, the walls tower over 2000 feet over the valley floor, and some places are even higher.
To give you an idea, take a look at this photograph from the West Rim Trail, one of my absolute favorite trails in Zion. The wall is so high, you can’t even see the top.
