The photo that is depicted on the stamp was taken by Åland nature photographer Niclas Nordlund who focused on nature motifs with seabirds to create this special issue. The photo was shot by him on a winter afternoon in December. Featuring the spectacular views near Hammarudda that is one of the most popular tourists’ destinations where the unremitting forces of the sea may be experienced.
The Åland landscape displays great diversity ranging from barren skerries to forests and fertile cultivated land on the main island. With a patchwork archipelago of more than 6500 islands and skerries, water forms almost 90 % of the total area.
