Telephoto lenses are ideal for capturing natural and manmade patterns in the landscape. These patterns may not be so obvious to the human eye, but because telephoto lenses compress perspective and magnify your subject, they are very effective at making the most of patterns. Ripples in sand, flowers in a field, avenues of trees, rows of crops, shadows cast across the land, the colours of autumnal foliage – if you look at the landscape through a telephoto lens you’ll see patterns everywhere, on both a large and small scale.
