A big draw back to always using a long lens is the limitation of a short distance photograph. And light. Low light is not a friend either.
However, at times you can grab a decent image and get the bokeh a big lens gives you. Bokeh being the out of focus / haze part of an image.
Shots like this are a trade off between the areas not good focus and not really blending into the bokeh effect. I’ll deal with that rather than start swapping lens in bad weather.
