The reason for why I included part of the parking lot in my picture of this spread of alpine tundra is: to give you a sense of the scale of the spread.

Had I only showed you standing water and boulders in a field of tundra plants, you wouldn't get a good enough feel for the awesome sweep of the spreading vastness of the spread. The recognizable forms of distant cars have the effect of translating my living 3D experience into a picture-language for your head to understand.
