Day 197 of 365

Goats, Elfvik Farm, Lidingö


Day 197 of my "365 Days" project. Goats, Elfvik Farm, Lidingö.


The Elfvik Farm is a seven hundred years old farm on the island of Lidingö, north of Stockholm. The farm lies in the Långängen-Elfvik nature reserve, surrounded by woods and pastures. 

Twenty minutes drives from the center of Stockholm and you're in the country side. There are horses, sheep, goats, cows, pigs in the farm; and deer, stags, hares, foxes and many other wild animals in the woods.


I went to Elfvik, five minutes drive from home, to test my new camera, a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

I'm truly amazed by the new 5D; I was shooting in low light at about 8:30 pm, at maximum zoom (105 mm) with f 8, and the ISO didn't go higher than 320!

Unfortunately I didn't bring a tele lens, and therefore all the animal shots had to be heavily cropped. And still, the image quality is quite good, despite the the crop.
