Project 52/Framed: Telephoto landscape

Our challenge this week on Who We Become was to use a specialty lens for an unusual purpose. I dusted off my 70-300 telephoto, which I don’t use often at all, much less for landscape photography, and took photos from the deck of our friends’ house in the Atlantic Highlands, high above Sandy Hook Bay. This picture, taken at 300mm, compresses space tremendously. The officers’ houses and lighthouse on Sandy Hook are several miles across the bay, and look almost like a row of toys. The more distant shore is Brooklyn, many times further away but brought close by the long lens.
