    • Hi Dan. No. The opposite. Used a zoom lens. 70-300mm lens on my canon 7D. With the zoom lens you can compose a shot much better, pick out the part of the landscape you like best and compose your shot. I am not into vast sweeping landscape shots, which you would get with a wide angle lens. Far more interesting (for me) to select the most interesting part of the landscape and take one (or even more) shots with more close-up and more interesting detail (using the zoom). And if the subject matter is far enough away, you still end up with a broad enough shot even with the zoom. And of course, with the zoom lens on the camera – when you come across something interesting (like the cow shot in that post for example) – then you also have the ability, without changing lenses & maybe losing the moment), to immediately zooming in real tight. All shots taken in my home locality of south Limerick in SW Ireland. Go visit sometime with your own camera and get some practice! Thanks for the interest and for dropping in. Have a good one! MB
