Telephotos for Landscape Photography

I typically shoot landscape/scenic photos with pretty wide lenses (somewhere between 10mm and 40mm), but in this case the stand of trees I wanted to isolate was a bit too far away for lenses of that category.  Having a lens arsenal that includes a medium telephoto helped eliminate most of the distracting foreground foliage, and halted the need for walking through mud and swampy areas.

This particular shot was taken with a tripod mounted Tamron 70-300mm VC lens, zoomed to 200mm.
