I'm not even dust in the grand scheme of things - and when I stand under soaring giants like the cliffs and mountains in Zion and look out into galaxies I can't even imagine in the night sky that is so different and so clear from any other night sky I've ever seen - it reminds me all over again how vast, impressive and amazing the universe is, and how I'm part of it for such a fleeting moment - and it inspires me to go and see more and do more before I am incapable. A photograph of it? Just an added bonus. :)
