Hi Denis,
Your photo makes me see how deceiving photography can be and here is why.
My guess is that this hill cannot be higher than 50m or so, considering the wheel tracks.
Yet, it looks disproportionately huge, comparable to a real mountain in the Canadian Rockies.
See all the photos taken from a plane; see how humble and dwarfed real mountains look like! This is the reason for I hate those photos; they just show a disproportionate image of those mountains while when you hike those mountains, the perception is totally different.
This is why I appreciate your photo and not necessary because of the nice blue sky:)

Default To Nelu_Goia: Disproportionately huge

Hi Nelu!

I'm glad that my picture captured your attention. Your critique is very contructive and very different from the ones I usually have. I appreciate that!

About the photo, the peak is 35 metres high and it may seems to be higher. With the 50 metres you have made a good reasoning and deduction.

Thanks Nelu :)
Best regards
