One (1) MNH SINGLE STAMP in title from Canada Post
2018 Weather Series
Delight in the breathtaking beauty of some of Canada’s most amazing weather phenomena with this single stamp from a booklet of 10 PermanentTM domestic stamps.
On the stamp featured on the booklet cover, a thick blanket of steam fog floats across the surface of a British Columbia lake. A second stamp shows a towering waterspout rising from Lake Ontario near Toronto, while a third depicts disc-shaped lenticular clouds soaring like UFOs over the mountains of Alberta’s Jasper National Park. Airborne ice crystals are responsible for the sensational light displays depicted on the final two stamps. In one, ice refracts moonlight in the skies above Whistler, British Columbia, creating an eerie halo effect. In the other, artificial light from the city of North Bay, Ontario, is reflected by the crystals, sending colourful pillars of dancing light into the winter sky.
These five striking stamps are a follow up to Canada Post’s first Weather Wonders issue in 2015. The name of the featured weather wonder is printed in microtype on each stamp.
