Impressive mountain panoramas are replacing the popular series of special stamps on the nature reserves in Liechtenstein. The current motifs by Marco Nescher and Dietmar Walser also emerged as winners of the Fotoclub Spektral photo competition with many competitors. Like their predecessors, the two panoramic views were divided in the middle, creating four stamps. They currently show a "Mountain Summer" and a "Sunrise" (left and right, face value: CHF 1.00 each) and appear as a se-tenant on an eight-stamp sheetlet. Liechtenstein is located fully within the Rätikon mountain range and has over 32 mountains with a height of at least 2,000 meters. Mountains cover about half of the national territory. The special "Mountain Summer" stamp focuses on the Falknis mountain range in the south of the country. It includes the Falknis (2,560 metres) as the western summit of the Rätikon as well as the Grauspitz, with 2,599 metres the highest mountain in Liechtenstein. The "Sunrise" photograph provides a fantastic view from Schönberg (2,104 meters) from where it is possible to see the surrounding mountain world particularly well.
