    Hello Peter,
    I am new to photography and while searching tips on the internet I came across one of your blogs something named as “15 minutes for digital photography” ( you wrote it at an airport). That led me to your website and I found a very valuable resource to start up my photgraphy lessons. I read and practised your “31+ days to better photography” and “31+ days photography experiments”. Those 2 lessons helped me a lot & I am now happy that I can shoot 🙂 Thank you for that !
    Well, I need few tips from you on landscape photography, especially capturing Mountains. I am planning a trip to a hill station (here in India, by the way I am from India) and want to capture sunrise and sunsets. Could you please guide me so that I take up my passion little further. I shall share my clicks as well after the trip if you are interested to see them 🙂
    I have a Canon 600D with basic 18-55 and 55-250 lenses.
    Thanks a lot.
    God Bless !!!
