Since you're somewhat new to DSLR, we should probably start at the basics, before getting into too much camera specific info. Otherwise it won't make much sense -- you won't have the point of reference to understand what it all means.

I'll be posting some of my images, as time allows. If you see something you think you could shoot where you are, then make a new post asking how a certain shot was done. I can provide any number of details on how I did it, what I used, and what you could do to get the same/similar shot.
