Beyond the scale of men

I thought it might be interesting to start a thread containing photos of people in very large landscapes - be they man made or natural so there is a strong contrast between the scale of the human and the larger scale of the built or natural environs in which they find themselves. Keep the people in the shot (ie not just photos of buildings and mountains). But you may have to look closely.

Fellow RFF member: I respect your bandwidth by not posting images larger than 800px on the longest side, and by removing image in a quote.
Together we can combat bandwidth waste (and image scrolling).

One of my favorite photographers, Pierre Tairraz has images of grand nature in the French Alps with human presence. At http://images.google.com search his name for examples.
