How tiny are we?

As a child, I always used to imagine lightning as being created by a supernatural being. Using a massive paintbrush soaked in brilliant white paint, it would take its own time to paint the strokes across the sky. I set my tripod and camera and kept shooting till I got this shot and then some. When I finally saw the picture on my laptop, it dawned upon me, how tiny we are. I mean, just look at the scale of those buildings as compared to the lightning!
