Scanning some old slides into my digital files, These were taken in 1968 using a Spotmatic. I was stationed at a remote weapons range in the sahara dessert, thats where I got interested in photography. The 1st picture is a shot from our U6 airplane as we approached Tripoli, have no idea what the equivalent iso would be was using ektacrome film. the second pix was the sun setting over the dessert with one of the range spotting towers in the pix.
