BACKGROUND

Guernsey’s coastline has been photographed countless times over the years, with amateurs and professionals keen to capture its breathtaking beauty. Many have done so, but few have captured the scenes with the sort of ethereal quality achieved by local photographers Nick Després and Alex Wallace of perfectprints.co.uk.

The images featured on the stamps are all fabulous pieces of art in their own right, so striking that it is tempting to think they have been digitally enhanced. However, they are simply the result of great skill, diligent research, superb subjects and just a tiny bit of luck in terms of Mother Nature’s performance on the day.
