Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been with this question in my mind for ages, can somebody, please explain me, if I'm wrong ,and where I'm wrong in my thought's:

-If, the length of any object in a moving frame will appear foreshortened in the direction of motion, or contracted.

-And a clock in a gravitational field runs more slowly according to the gravitational time dilation relationship from general relativity.

Doesn't this mean that if we take an observer into a higher gravitational field where things are closer he wouldn't even notice it because time would be slower for him and distances would seem the same as before?
