This image covers slightly more than two football fields laid side by side, or a bit less than a major league baseball field. This particular field lies at the heart of San Francisco's center for arts and science in Golden Gate Park.

Blue whales have been known to reach as much as 30 meters in length – fully one-third the width of this image. Even larger is the giant redwood tree found along the northern coast of California. The largest redwoods surpass 100 meters in height with trunks larger than 10 meters in diameter.
