The nimble and nifty Nikon D40

Challenge #4 in the Nouns and Verbs series. Hosted by Bob Yanal.
Challenge has finished
The 6-megapixel Nikon D40, sometimes maligned on Dpreview forums but reviewed quite well elsewhere, is a very popular DSLR. On Flickr alone, the D40 is, among all Nikons, the second most popular camera: Flickr counts 30 million items (only the D80 bests it at 43 million). And Nikon.com still lists it. Submit your best D40 shot. No restrictions on subject matter (or lens). But: EXIF must accompany your photo, else I'll disqualify it.

Docked at Louisville, Kentucky , the Delta Queen was a joy to see traveling the Ohio River. Built in 1926. It is an American sternwheel steamboat and a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Three different United States Presidents have sailed on the Delta Queen: Sadly at the end of 2008 the Majestic America Line announced it is ending all operations and that its assets, including all its riverboats, were for sale. I can only hope that someday, it will again, travel on the Ohio.
