Is it me or does the clutch pedal sit way too high?

This is my first manual car and I have had alot of good advice from some of my friends. But the one that gets me is that they say to use my heel to pivot the clutch in and out. Now, I'm pretty short and wear size 9 so I end up using my thigh and knee to put clutch in and out. Now I'm having sciatica problems and I'm sure part of it is due to shifting this thing. I remember when we picked up a Mazda5 for my wife and I sat in the Mazdaspeed3. Man, that clutch pedal was pretty low and very little travel. I felt like that's the way clutch pedals should be. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my car (see pics)? Is there anything I can do to get the clutch pedal's home position to match horizontal and vertical level of the brake pedal? Any pics of what a normal M3 clutch pedal relative to brake pedal would be appreciated.
