I love the action mode of my Nikon D40X. Without it I’d not only miss out on capturing priceless moments involving my granddaughters, but many ones overseas. Recently captured this shot of the Swiss Alps during an approach to Geneva, Switzerland.

    A real WOW shot, Deb! I need all the room I can get for my feet, so I never open my camera bag on the plane. Besides that, I always seem to get a dirty airplane window!

    Thanks so much everyone. Don, I usually have an isle seat, but because this was a short flight from Rome, I opted for a window seat. So glad I did. BTW, the window was scratched.
