About

Stefan Viklund worked as an ICT Administrator in Säffle, Sweden.

Married , four kids and one lovely grandchild.

Purchased his kayak 2008 and after this he become an “kayacoholic”. It´s great in the summer to just go out with his kayak and tent after work and be out for a couple of days.

He live in a nice area with a lot of small lakes in close range and 10 km to Vanern – the largest lake in north of europe.

He have always had a hobby of taking pictures with SLR and DSLR, even assorted pocket cameras and now more recently mobile phones.

Cameras that he use:

Canon EOS 70D, GoPro 3, GoPro 2 and Samsung Galaxy S7.

In addition to his kit lens (18-55, 55-250), he uses a Canon EF 100 f2.8 macro USM, EF 70-200 f4 L USM and a EF 40 f2.8.

He need a nice tele lens, 300-500mm (it is on his list) 🙂

  1. Thank you for the follow! I really enjoyed looking through your side, love your shots, your passion for the outdoors and was so nice to be introduced throughout your pictures to the wild side of Sweden! Your black and white photos are really my favorite ones, just as your cat and dog! They are adorable together! Looking forward to see all your adventures captured by one of your many cameras!~

    Best regards,

  2. Thank you for finding and following my blog I will follow in return… We are a long way away from your home downunder.

    1. Thanks Catherine, you have a interesting blog. My wife has MS so I know a little about it, but want to know more about MS so I read a lot of blogs and other sites. MS has many “faces”

      1. What a good support you are to your wife! Means alot! Wonderful you are learning. MS indeed has many “faces”. Please ask any questions you might have. Check out clinicaltrials.gov (here in the states) with lots of information about current studies…hope for what’s to come! 🙂

  3. hello stefan,

    your interesting blog gives me a good appreciation and impression of sweden.
    best regards,
    ken

    1. Thanks Ken.
      That´s the fun part for me; to look at others photo work and in that way not stand still in my own photography. It´s creating so much more ideas for future pictures. 🙂

  4. thanks for visiting and following my page, your pages are so wonderful, if u have time, visit mine again for fun trinhmanhdo.com 😉

  5. Kayaking in Sweden sounds so adventurous! I’ve done warm water river kayaking in OR where I live, and it can be either very adrenaline-stoking or calm, depending on where you go. I’m getting too old for the adrenaline runs, but the scenic rides are better than meditation, I’ve found.

    1. I often look for calm places, if it´s high waves on Vanern (the biggest lake in north of europe) I go to the small lakes we have here.I have never paddled in flowing water.. 🙂

  6. Jättefina bilder! Jag är nästan speciellt imponerad över hur du lyckas ta såna bilder med telefonen! jag har samma telefon och fattar ingenting om hur jag ska fotografera med den, men du har inspirerat mig att försöka! 🙂

  7. Thanks for stopping by and following my photo blog. I am on a very slow connection so when I tried loading some of your pics, it just hung up on me. I am sure I will enjoy viewing. Your pics and following as well. I will check out your photos when I get a faster connection in a few hours.

  8. I am like minded about the magnetic powers of the kayak. My family visits a very special fly fishing club (100 years old, no television/computer/cell phones allowed) on a beautiful isolated lake in Vermont. There are always “house” kayaks for loan and my nine year old son took one out for the very first time last summer. I will always take with me, the memory of his sweet voice singing in abandon as he paddled out early morning amid the call of the loons.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking some of my work. You have some beautiful photos here! Looking forward to more from you. 🙂

    1. Thanks!

      And you also have beautiful photos on objects that I like to take pictures of. 🙂

  12. Thank you for liking my post On The Water. I am finding kayaking very addictive. It is 5:30 am here now and I am heading out on the lake again. I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  13. For your first WPC, you really nailed it, meaning, you did well. Keep on doing what you’re doing. You’re the secon kayacolholic I follow. I’ve only kayaked once, down the American River near Sacramento, California. It was a bit edgy going through the narrow pillars of a bridge, though. I look forward to your posts. And thanks for stopping by my challenge.
