I rather like the French name for this series of stamps – meteorlogical phenomena, though I guess we all 'wonder' at the weather. Is there a country that doesn't think they talk more about the weather than anyone else? These stamps were issued to coincide with the anniversary of 175 years of the first weather observatory.
This beautiful set came out in June 2015. It was designed by Kostas Tsetsekas and feature the works of five different photographers from across the country.
The lightning was captured in Manitoba by David Reede; the double rainbow was found in Quebec by Mike Grandmaison; the rare sundog, created by ice crystals in the sky was seen in Nunavut by Frank Reardon (that's the Arctic city of Iqaluit shown); in Alberta, Daryl Benson found some hoar frost; and finally, at the Cape Spear Lighthouse in Newfoundland, Geoff Whiteway was up early enough to see this morning fog.
