BEST STAMPS with LIGHTHOUSES - Year 2016


Hello Friends:


This is the top 10 of stamps with lighthouses of this blog for the year 2016. Thanks to all of you that sended your opinions and helped to build this list.


1st Place

CHINA - October 28
Unexpected and beautiful. The stamps were the first images of some of these brand new lighthouses builded in the South China Sea. 



2nd Place

LATVIA - October 07
Great design. A lot of information and images in a tiny space of one stamp.



 3rd Place

SOUTH KOREA - August 25
Colourful design helped by a marvelous selection of lighthouses. 



4 
GERMANY
July 07
 
Reinhard Scheiblich (photos) at his best. Specially Kampen, Even the cows combine with the lighthouse!
Click Here for a look at Scheiblich and his work.

GUERNSEY
May 25

Big waves and lighthouses, a combination that always results in a great view.
6 
NETHERLANDS
February 01
and
May 23

Excellent year for us thanks to the serie "Mooi Nederland". Several lighthouses with a very good stylistic interpretation
7
NORWAY
October 01

Sober but nice design for this serie that in 2017 will take a break.
8
SAINT PIERRE
ET 
MIQUELON

October 07

I have a predilection for the gravure. So here it is the work of Elsa Catelin for the SPM stamp of
Pointe-Plate
9
JERSEY
November 4

Great photos of Noirmont and La Corbiere among the winter stamps of this year
10
IRELAND
October 06

Disappointing design of the stamps of this highly anticipated set. This issue reaches the Number 10 only helped by a good design of the booklet and some great photos in the panes of it.


I wish you all a Happy New Year and that 2017 be better than 2016. 

We keep in touch
Carlos
