The camera can create very convincing *distortions*. One thing at work in this photograph is something called [compression distortion](https://fstoppers.com/architecture/how-lens-compression-and-perspective-distortion-work-251737). In photographs shot with very long lenses, things which may actually be very far apart appear crowded very close together— distance appears compressed. This is because the more magnification you have, the larger distant objects appear relative to nearer ones. It’s the same thing you see when you look through powerful binoculars. This is precisely the reason a photographer may choose a longer lens—to take advantage of this phenomenon. For instance, if you want a photograph with a barn in the foreground and an enormous moon rising in the background, use a very long lens.
