Stefan Viklund works as an ICT Administrator in Säffle, Sweden. He’s married with four kids and one lovely grandchild. Saffle is a nice area to live in with a lot of small lakes in close range and 10 km to Vanern – the largest lake in the north of Europe.

Stefan purchased his kayak in 2008 and after that he became a ‘kayacoholic.’ He says that 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 always had a hobby of taking pictures with SLR and DSLR, even assorted pocket cameras and now more recently mobile phones.

Canon EOS 70D, Canon EOS 350D, GoPro 3, GoPro 2, Panasonic DMC FT4 (waterproof), Olympus Tough 6000 (waterproof) and phones: Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S6.

Rishikesh is a city in India’s northern state of Uttarakhand, in the Himalayan foothills beside the Ganges River. The river is considered holy, and the city is renowned as a center for studying yoga and meditation. Temples and ashrams (centers for spiritual studies) line the eastern bank around Swarg Ashram, a traffic-free, alcohol-free and vegetarian enclave upstream from Rishikesh town.

I use DSLR cameras, but I don’t forget the film cameras, so I shoot on film even today. One day I’ll post photos done on film. The conclusion is I love to learn, to read, and of course visual arts. I like paintings and pictures, classical and crossover music, I like mountains and the sea, everything is beautiful. My vision in photography is a little bit different from others; I prefer to set my camera as perfectly as I can, and to use software (Lightroom or Photoshop), for little rares and to put my name on it. I use different cameras, from Olympus, Pentax to Nikon or Canon full frame for digital photography and on film from Voigtlander to Nikon even Russian cameras, and be sure I love them all.

      Thanks, Teagan! It’s a page so e-mail doesn’t go out to followers. I do send it out to Twitter, FB, & Google + though. One new sunset photo is featured each week. It’s on the Welcome Page, then archived. Hugs back.💗 Chryssa
