As much as I romanticize about traveling with nothing more than a 35mm prime lens, I really can’t live without a long zoom or telephoto. For example, I shot this image high up in the Mayan Mountains of Belize looking down on the Hummingbird Highway. Well beyond the reach of a 35mm focal length. I really like this image. You could rationalize that with a single lens you will miss certain image, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. You win some. You lose some. Personally, I have a hard time with that. I don’t burden myself with a lot of gear, I actually think I travel pretty light, but I still can’t limit myself to a single lens. If you have, or you can, I would love to hear from you. Anything to help me get over my fear.
