Taken one windy afternoon at the shoreline of the Pantabangan Dam. I was looking for suitable foregrounds typical of shoreline landscape photographs but was hard-pressed to find one. I turned my sights to the horizon and found layers of mountains dissolving into soft pastels. I searched for my anchor and found a lush tree sitting tightly by the bank.
Landscape photographs are not limited to sweeping vistas usually covered by ultra wide angle lenses. A telephoto lens however, which is really not known for its landscape capabilities, can also provide unique landscape opportunities that its wider counterparts cannot.
