From brilliant flashes of lightning to crystal-clear ice veneers, the images on these special Weather Wonder stamps showcase the incredible variety of weather as experienced in Canada – all thanks to the photographers who braved the elements to capture these meteorological marvels.
Armed with these spectacular visuals, Kosta Tsetsekas and Defne Corbacioglu – of Vancouver-based Signals – designed a set of stamps that are tied together seamlessly.
“We used themed icons as a nod to the long history of weather iconography – the small suns, clouds and raindrops you see in your daily weather forecast,” explains Tsetsekas. “The icons add spice to the stamps without clouding the wonderful photography,” adds Corbacioglu.
The five photographs come from every corner of the country. Daryl Benson snapped hoar frost covering a tree near Beaumont, Alberta. Geoff Whiteway focused on hazy, early-morning fog at Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site in Newfoundland.
In Saint-Gédéon, Quebec, Mike Grandmaison chased a rain shower to shoot a double rainbow, while Dave Reede captured radiant flashes of lightning near Winnipeg, Manitoba. Further north, in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Frank Reardon caught rarely witnessed sun dogs, created by ice crystals in the air.
Each weather wonder was carefully chosen with expert assistance from Environment Canada’s senior climatologist.
