Landscape Scale and Texture

One thing that interests me about landscape photography is the scale perceived by someone looking at the photograph. Is the scene immense, or is it a tiny detail?

When landscape is reduced to the textural, as in these images of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley, the viewer may not have a point of reference–and may not be able to tell whether the photo depicts something big or small, or even whether it is a landscape or a quilt!
