Telephoto Views of Rocky Mountain National Park
Have you noticed that very long telephoto and very wide angle shots are trendy amongst today's photographers? Each night before I go to bed, I use the Life "app" to review the day's top photos. With almost predicatble regularity, each image is an extreme wide angle or a long telephoto. What happened to the good 'ole days of the 50mm equivalent lens? I think that focal lenght has died for photojournalism.
Anyways, As I was shooting in RMNP, I often had my long telephoto lens on the camera to capture wildlife. Why not capture the interesting details 10 miles across the valley as well?
