Thanks Nayan, will surely give it a try. wondering if I should carry a tripod or rely on finding a wall where I could keep my camera.

Plenty of walls and battlements and window ledges.

Thanks again Nayan, but was thinking of taking the tripod anyway for Hawamahal at night. But it is a drag and I anyway hardly know how to use it.

A tripod would be good and I think it's pretty easy to use.
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Thanks Delhiwala, will try this time. I find it difficult to adjust the angle of the camera if I wish to tilt it. maybe I need to practice a little before I go.

Many thanks for your suggestions. I went to the Nahargarh Fort and loved the sunset. Though they have closed the terrace to the fort, we went ahead a bit on the road and clicked the sunset from a high point.

Beautiful shot of the sun melting away in the distance. Thank you for updating this thread mridula. In March next year, I'll be taking my camera, can't wait to try simailar shots from high points. Did you use the tripod then or were you resting on a wall/fence?

Thanks Spud, I did use a tripod. And a bonus was this shot of Jal Mahal at Dusk while coming back from the Nahar garh Fort. Somewhere on the road I got a very clear view of Jal Mahal, and asked the taxi driver to stop. I don't think this shot was possible without the tripod. Also this is the first time I really used a tripod, I am pleased with the result and would lug it around more.

Another lovely shot over at your blog mridula. I think it might be a good idea to get a lightweight tripod for my holiday too. I don't want to get up high somewhere taking shots and wishing I'd brought a tripod along, not worth the risk for those sunset/dawn shots. Thanks again mridula.

Hi Spud
Another input from me.[ former professional photographer, who still gets income from royalties on my images, as managed by my agent, and not stolen from the web]

I used to carry a tripod and now only use this

http://www.speedgraphic.co.uk/alumin...le/7285_p.html.

It is magic, useful in all situations. handy fending off touts, beggar boys etc

A sunset shot should not need a tripod, just shoot a a few shots as the sun sinks down.

You get more magical sunsets in the UK, however the brown cloud in India gives a different effect, as does the proximity to the equator

Spud, if possible do update this thread once you got your pictures, thought I know March is still a little far away.

I only specified the one I use and has provided me with the results I get
.

Yes I agree the products they advertise are amazing, but it is a UK site, And its what people expect and it would not survive without support from the punters who are prepared to spend their money.

In UK so many photography retailers, Jessops for one are really suffering.

On line is king, as long as you know what you want.

Decisions, decisions.

Mridula of course I'd be delighted to post a few of my photos here on IndiaMike, especially after all the help & advice fellow Mikers have given me the last few months. Maybe a report of some kind too, I love reading other people's experiences. I'll no doubt start a blog too!

Definately a tripod though fsg as now I'm seeing time lapse examples and falling in love with them. Anyway that 'stick' will make me look like an old man! If you really want to make those touts tremble... try waving a golf club around!
Jessops in the UK not doing good business? Hmm. I Wonder why Panasonic fz100= 399. Amazon price 340. Actually though, some of the other big zoom cameras over at Jessops (just had a look) weren't too badly priced, but yeah personally, I'd just go straight to Amazon or an even cheaper online alternative.

Check out Jessops on the Stock market.

Wait till you see the touts in India.

You will be amazed how agressive and persistent they are.

Enjoy your trip. please post back, With PIX of course, tho few posters do.

I am far from being geriatric, my modus operandi has been honed over many years as a photographer.

If something has a dual purpose, dont duplicate
