Geology and Landscapes

The theme for this week in Sunday Stamps is Geology or Landscapes. Happily Viridian offered this alternative. Because I have realised that stamps about geology are quite common around the world. However, I have received just one so far!

Anyway, I am proud to show it, as I love the theme, its colours and its triangular shape:



The second part to the theme allows me to post some stamps about beautiful, sometimes distant, landscapes. I love the stamps made of a real picture. You can discover more and more details if you look closer to them.

From Australia


From Germany


From Lithuania


From the Netherlands


From New Zealand


From Russia


From the UK

  1. The Netherlands stamp has me foxed - is it a mountain/hill being shown. I had not seen the Morne Mountain stamps before.

  2. The Ukraine stamp is lovely but the landscapes are wonderful. I think the Netherlands one must be a flood control dike.

    1. Yes, it is. I received this stamp some time ago and now I'm not able to find it again and take a better picture, sorry!

    2. Indeed, it's a kind of dam / dike (strekdam in Dutch, don't know the correct translation into English), to protect against decline by waves.
      I found a picture of the complete serie on this site - http://tinyurl.com/pqd5w43 . Which is about the Wadden Sea, but this specific dike is more southward, in a lake (the IJsselmeer), close to the city of Lelystad.

    1. Thanks for your comment and information. The stamps I upload have been received trough the snail mail. I mean I'm not exactly a stamps collector. So sometimes I miss some information... :) But I should say that I learn a lot trough "Sunday Stamps".

      By the way, you run an interesting blog!
