Scenic cover from the land of the long white cloud

New Zealand is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty; jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fiords, pristine trout-filled lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches, and active volcanic zones. No wonder New Zealanders are so proud to showcase their beautiful country to the world through stamps.

Posted from Auckland, Dave Hartnell used two stamps from the 1996 self adhesive scenic definitives.  They show Mt Egmont and Lake Wakatipu.

Issue in 1995, the right stamp on the second row depicts the iconic Mitre Peak, one of the most photographed peaks in the country.

The top right stamp (Bungy Jumping in Queenstown) belongs to the "Scenic - 100 Years of Tourism" series. Issued on 4th July 2001, this set of stamps sort to capture the combination of beautiful landscapes and fun activities. 

Lastly is a stamp from the 1994 A to B self adhesive coil stamp. The letter A represents the sender and B represents the recipient of the mail.
