the effect of telephoto or zoom lens distortion

We mentioned this in the Minneapolis post, so here is an example which demonstrates the effect even more plainly. The Torlesse Mountains in the background of this scene of the TranzAlpine passenger train at Springfield are nowhere near as dramatically huge at this location as they seem here. Those who have our books On the TransAlpine Trail and The Midland Line will have true versions of this scene.
