2006 Crop Circles

Crop Circles photographed in 2006

Welcome to the 2006 Image Gallery

If 2005 had been intense, 2006 was of a completely different order. It was a very, very quiet season. That being said, there were some beautiful circles that year. They many have not come in numbers, but those that did arrive were as beautiful as ever. The stand out formation of the year was undoubtedly the circle at Wayland’s Smithy. Nicknamed ‘The Towers’ it depicted one point projection for the very first time in crop circle design. The circle was a series of towers (twelve in all) emanating from a central dodecagram (twelve pointed star). The resultant image gives the impression of a ariel flight over a ring tower blocks of differing heights. It’s a truly iconic design. This focus upon dimensionality was also evident on a series of circles which used rings and crescents to create the illusion of dips rises and tunnels! As if continuing this theme, of visual illusion two huge circles appeared which used parabolic curves – this is where straight lines are criss-crossed on a grid to create the illusion of a curve. For this new website we have gone back through our archive, and painstakingly scanned and cleaned up many of our images to share with you for the first time – we hope you enjoy them!
