Saudi Arabia issued several series of stamps using this basic design, over a period of 15 years or so. The stamp features Wadi Hanifa Dam, the languages used are Arabic and French (latter being the official language of the UPU at the time) :



The design in the oval ("cartouche") is the stylised name of King Saud bin Abdulaziz al Saud, other stamp series feature a similar cartouche bearing the name of King Faisal.

From the Republic of Lebanon, two stamps showing waterfalls:

Litani -



Afka -



Incidentally both stamps were designed by Paul Koroleff, a Russian who fled his country in the 1920's and ended up designing many Lebanon and Syria stamps from the 1930's.

Water Skiing Championships, Vichy, France
1963






This stamp always gives me a bit of a laugh, it's somewhat campy, but also very fun.
Engraved by Pierre Gandon (1899-1990). A beautifully executed design.

The very first sentence on this thread says it all and here is a stamp for Earth Day, today, from Morocco, not blessed with very much water. Unusual is the 'upside-down' drop.
