On the 6th of September the Liechtenstein Post issued two stamps dedicated to the landscapes of this country.
Although the picture most people have of Liechtenstein is determined by the mountain world of the Lower Alps, in reality it is the valley landscape divided in two by the Rhine. The first two stamps in the "Liechtenstein Panorama" series highlight the "valley landscape".
Two stamps on the theme "Mountain Landscape" will follow in the coming year.
The panoramic photograph reproduced on the stamps is by the Ruggell photographer Josef Heeb. As a member of the Spektral photographic club he entered and won a competition initiated by Philatelie Liechtenstein on "Liechtenstein Panorama". The panoramic photograph was taken in the middle of the Ruggell marsh in a slowly dispersing morning mist.
