This week the topic is Scale.
You know on most days a tanker truck is a large item, but parked next to a 113,000 ton cruise ship it resembles a toy.
The same concept applies to a train that is relegated to a narrow stretch of track as it navigates a 3000 foot plus mountain range.
Reversing the effect of the first photograph here is our cruise ship from a distance as taken while riding the White Pass & Yukon Route railroad. Our ship is on the right.
Yes, I know I am overusing the cruise ship dynamic, but I actually took this one with the intent of getting a good shot of Mount Rainier in the distance. Can you see the little motor boat between the tanker at the bottom and the cruise ship father out?
