Canadian photographer’s iconic iceberg shot is now an international stamp

St. John’s photographer Michael Winsor rushed to the small town of Ferryland to capture a shot of a towering iceberg that parked itself beside the town in 2017.

He managed to snap an iconic photo that quickly went viral around the world.

It made headlines in The New York Times, CNN, BBC, Time, The Guardian, Russia’s state-backed news channel and beyond.

It also drew a flood of onlookers to Ferryland, a town of just 500 people, in the spring of 2017.

Now, it’ll be shown around the world once again, but this time as an international stamp.

Winsor’s photos are often featured Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, where he says Canada Post found his work.

Canada Post contacted him to participate in the “From Far and Wide” stamp series, which will hit shelves this week.

Winsor said it’s a special feeling to be recognized on a stamp that will travel the world.

He added that he’s considering mailing his own prints to customers marked with the stamp he shot, which only seems fitting.
