SL on a blustery day

Following my first attempt with the Asahi Pentax SL in which the mirror froze up after a few frames, I pulled it apart again, tried to clean all those tiny moving parts, lubed it up with some very light oil, and put it back together. It looks like the sticky mirror is fixed for now. I was all out of Neopan 100 Acros so I loaded a roll of Neopan 400 Presto (please Fuji, bring it back in 120! PLEASE!!) and headed out. The weather was a combination of sunny clear skies and occasional snow flurries. After using the light meter on the first few frames, I ended up just parking it on 1/500s and f/16. Then later in the day I drove down the mountain and on the way back up the afternoon sun was hitting the mountain and making it look rather warm and cozy. Everything was shot with the SMC Takumar 50/1.4.
