The Optical Illusion Mountains
The Manzano Mountains are in my proverbial backyard but their height is a topic of optical confusion. Their size does not seem to change appropriately with viewing distance. For example, (see the photo above) when viewed from the west side of Los Lunas - on Main Street west of Los Lunas High School, the Manzano Mountains look pretty big, like big BIG. This would represent a viewing distance of >20 miles. From this vantage point, I would think that if I were standing right in front of them they would would tower up to the sky.
