Guernsey’s Sepac stamp issued Aug. 1 features a bird’s-eye view photo of the reservoir at St. Saviour. The 76-penny stamp was issued in a set of six showcasing the work of Elliott Cockett, a young director, cinematographer and photographer who calls himself “The Drone Ranger.”

The other five stamps picture aerial shots of Vale Castle (46p), Rousse Tower (62p), Torteval Church (63p), Pembroke (85p) and Beaucette Marina (94p).

Bridget Yabsley, head of the philatelic section of Guernsey Post, said: “Guernsey has more than its fair share of stunning scenery and we’re really pleased with the aerial scenes that Elliott has captured, which offer a different perspective not often showcased.”

Mark Totty designed the stamps. Cartor printed them by offset in sheets of 10.
