I was up by 5am, the rain had pretty much ended - it seems to be a season of deluges and floods - the window of opportunity came to whisk down to Peggy's Cove while on my way to do a Church visit assignment in Halifax. I didn't have a lot of time, the lighting was marginal and it was cold and windy.
I had to use ISO 400 on the D40, I had reasonable hand-held exposures of 1/25th second at f/8. I did pump up the colors although I really didn't have to, but I wanted to emphasize the boldness.
The Web reviewers were right - the higher ISO's with the D40 are very clean, who needs a 10 MP camera?
