I like the graphic qualities in this composition with the tight cropping and criss-cross leaves in the background, so I thought I’d share.

Official press release from the USPS

18 04 2016

From the USPS official press release:

Hi,

I’m with the Postal Service and wanted to give you a heads up that Washington, D.C., area photographer Cindy Dyer beat the odds by having her beautiful water lily photo selected on a Forever Stamp as the 11th of 16 stamps to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. Cindy is a great interview. Please feel free to reach out to her: 703.577.4122 or dyerdesign@aol.com. Here’s Cindy’s website: www.cindydyerphotography.com

The Postal Service gets about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year, but only about 20 topics make the cut. To have your work appear on a stamp is extremely rare and is often unparalleled in a photographer’s career. Here’s a link to the news release: http://about.usps.com/n…/national-releases/2016/pr16_026.htm

The June 2 first-day-of-issue ceremony for the National Parks Forever Stamps pane will take place at New York City’s Javits Center at 11 a.m. as part of the world’s largest stamp show that only takes place in the United States once a decade, World Stamp Show-NY 2016. Dedication ceremonies will also take place at or near each of the National Parks depicted on the stamps. Individuals are asked to spread the news on social media by using the hashtags ‪#‎NPSStamps‬, ‪#‎FindYourPark‬ or ‪#‎NPS100‬.

Other National Park Forever Stamps previewed to date include Acadia National Park, Arches National Park, Assateague Island National Seashore, Bandelier National Monument, Carlsbad Caverns National Park , Everglades National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve,Grand Canyon National Park, Gulf Islands National Seashore and Haleakalā National Park.
