Valley of Desolation
Lens: K35/3.5 Camera: K1000 Photo Location: South Africa ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8

One of the last images from my K1000 before I sold it after 38 years. As I haven't shot film in a long time, I might be a bit off on the shutter speed and f stop, but it should be in the ballpark for the exposure I got?

Putting 2 rolls of film through it, I realized I should stop complaining about the weight of gear these days, as the K1000 was built like a tank, and not too comfortable in the hand, but it got the job done
