Sunday Stamps # 179

It is a beautiful Saturday evening in the American Midwest, and already Sunday in some parts of the world.  Therefore, it must be time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is beautiful landscapes, which are not hard to find on stamps, if you look around a bit.
My first stamp is this one:

A flat, evergreen-covered landscape could be very boring but it looks quite attractive in this Finland stamp of a National Park.  And, then just last week, I received these stamps from  Spain, via a Postcrosser:

Stamps again showing National Parks, and some of the flora (crocus?) and fauna (wolf) of these areas.  There is great detail in these Spanish stamps!

Please join me this week if you can, with some landscape stamps, as always, interpreted broadly.

Theme next week; Artists and illustrators.
Theme week after that: open, anything you wish.

the Spanish ones are very nice. I like the addition of the flowers and animals. It's like getting a twofer!

National Parks is a great theme for stamps, the peaceful Finnish landscape and the wildness of Spain, gorgeous.

I wonder why our Post Office has not had a set for National Parks.
Three great views, love the wolf.

All three are beautiful. I imagine Finland has quite a few beautiful landscape stamps.
