I like this bar coded $10 one one as it was VFU on a heavy parcel to me recently! Sender had placed plastic over the top.

I added a nice sum to the sender's cheque, as this will sell readily, as the $10 0r $20 are seldom seen nice used.

Nice stamps, Io and Glen!

We used to have a lady at our Club who collected waterfalls...

...she collected cows on stamps as well, but preferred to be known as the "Waterfall Lady" ... :twisted:

Some very nice stamps above - volcanoes just add that dramatic touch to mountains :D
Here is one from Papua New Guinea, issued in 1995...

Iomoon,

Didn't know you could find that many volcano stamps. Do show us more. The one from Island sure looks fierce. Also like the Toga stamp the most, having that old engraved look about it.

Cheers
Andrew

Hi Iomoon,

Think of it, I have seen this Italian stamp many times but never noticed the volcano behind the man. And to even notice the dust cloud from the volcano, that is something else. Must go locate those that I have and see whether they have the volcano cloud or not. Thanks for the info. Looking forward to your other postings of volcano stamps.

Cheers
Andrew

Todays image is of Soufriere, Montserrat.

One of three volcanoes called Soufriere in the West Indies.
The first eruption of modern times began in 1995 and has since destroyed the capital city of Plymouth.

Only from the perspective that the cinder cone which is illustrated was erupted in November of 1978.
It was a monogenetic volcano (only ever has one eruption).
It probably took them a while to take the photo and print the stamps.

BTW, the Asal rift is one of the most inhospitable places on Earth, it rivals Death Valley.

Thanks Iomoon,

Quite a fair bit of patience and work to get the whole thing right. Don't know much about that part of the world except I had a student last semester who said he came from Djibouti.

Iomoon,

To your knowledge, was there ever a stamp issued to commemorate krakatoa: the effects of its eruption affectingthe world many years after that?

Thanks Iomoon,

This volcano sure made a lot of history. I was told that for many months (and perhaps years), the sunsets in the region were beautiful because of ash that circulated the air.

The Krakatau must have been one mother of a volcano.

This just goes to show that you only see what you are looking for. I didn't think that there were many volcano stamps out there but "wow". I have never tried thematic collecting. Always liked to group things as countries & whole sets. A couple of albums I picked up recently at stamp club had ships & trains, that started me thinking & looking. Maybe one day I will look at a topic!

Ships and trains are good themes. I know a Stamp club member whose collection is all about the railways. I believe he has won prizes for his collection.

Probably because it isn't a mountain, but rather an overall 30 x 20 mile (48 x 32 km) hole in the ground.

It only erupts about every million years or so.

However it falls within the classification of a "supervolcano".

Glen,

There was a doco on ABC about 18 months ago on world volcano's. It showed from the likes of Pompeii through to yellowstone. Up until then I thought it was just a geyser but it is definately a volcano. What is worse was they showed a computer generated sequence of how the world would change if it erupted, all I can say is WOW! It was scary.
Happiness is a journey, NOT a destination.

Not a country normally associated with volcanism; the Faroe Islands.

And a stamp with St. Brendan and active volcano.

I'm open to suggestions as to which volcano.

iomoon the Faeroes remind me I went to Iceland once which as you'd know is THE most volcanically active "young" country on earth AFAIK.

The drive from Keflavik airport to the main city of Reykjavik is spooky .. total black lava fields on both sides of the road.

I visited the Westerman Islands main town in Iceland which was buried and covered in lava in quite recent times.

A small new rock outcrop popped up above sea level way to the south of their land mass due to some volcanic upheaval in recent decades. They dashed out and planted a flag and erected some kind of weather hut, and their 200 mile Territorial limit started from THERE ... giving them zillion ton more of cod and more North Sea Oil rights!

I went to the Galapagos Islands once and there is a TON of lava all over that place. how weird.

And the same on Easter Island .. near covered in Lava and pumice.

I flew to see Kilauea Volcano, Hawai`i a few years back when it was going nuts.

You see rivers of lava at night, and stayed at that weird old hotel there called Volcano house where you see all kinds of steam belching up from the crater you overlook eating breakfast!

Even weirder is that Keflavik airport is /was? in the middle of a US Airforce base, something which did not please the Icelanders last time I was there.

Even more weird is that when Keflavik and Akureyri airports are closed, there exists a stript of volcanic ash north of Askaja which is very flat and lined as an avenue with yellow painted rocks on either side of a "runway".

As for Hawaii, the Kailua-Kona airfield is built on the 1801 lava.

It just so happens that La Grille is the name of a volcano at the northern end of Grand Comore.

Le Lac Sal, below, is one of its former eruption sites.

Even though it was prior to the invention of colour photography there are colour pictures of the sunsets caused by Krakatau's eruption. I saw them on a volcano documentary. An artist in England did a series of pastel pictures of the sunsets for quite a long time (maybe a year or so?).

And we have Krakatau to thank for Frankenstein.
She was on holiday and wrote the story because the weather was so bad and they hadn't been able to do other things. The bad weather was blamed on the effects of the eruption.

Biggles,

Yep volcanoes have often played an important role in history, though often neglected.

The eruption of Laki figures prominently in Benjamin Franklin's dispatches from Paris as American envoy.

Frankenstein probably owes its background to the 1815 eruption of Tambora. Far bigger than Krakatau.
