Notes

  1. Spend some time in darkness and watch the stars laden sky. One glance and you know what you missed in your city back home. You know the vastness and idea of your entity.

  2. Before sleeping at night, keep quiet inside your tent and try listening to the night world. Hills have a different world of their own which comes alive only at night.

  3. Hills are the best place to try low light photography. Dusk & dawns present ample opportunities no one should miss out.
