This domestic rate ("kiwi") stamp of private courier New Zealand Mail (NZM) depicts Mount Sunday, New Zealand. 08/11 inscription at bottom right of stamp indicates that this an August 2011 printing.

From atlasobscura.com, "When J.R.R. Tolkien was writing his description of Edoras, the capital city/fort of the kingdom of Rohan, he most likely had no idea he was essentially describing New Zealand's Mount Sunday. Nestled in the Canterbury Plains of South Island, Mount Sunday feels worlds away from civilization. But, in reality, this majestic spot is only about two hours away from Christchurch."

Here is the low value 1/2 real value (Sc #1) from El Salvador's first set (four stamps). Stamps were issued in 1867 and depict the active volcano San Miguel..

From wikipedia, "San Miguel (also known as Volcan Chaparrastique) is a stratovolcano in central-eastern El Salvador...On December 29, 2013, San Miguel erupted at 10:30 local time spewing ash and smoke into the sky, and prompting the evacuation of thousands of people living in a 3 kilometer radius around the volcano." Last eruption was in 2018. Photo shows San Miguel in 2013.
