2012 Crop Circles

Crop Circles photographed in 2012

Welcome to the 2012 Image Gallery

2012 was a much anticipated year. The crop circles have long been connected to an approaching paradigm shift one which many ten connected with the End of the Mayan Calendar in 2012. The year began with a handful of formations in the yellow of oilseed rape fields. The first formation in barley at Manton in Wilts was interpreted as a Polar Clock denoting Aug 6th as a possible date to watch. The 29th of June saw a highly unusual crop circle appear at Stanton St. Bernard, it was quickly named The Cathedral and showed a complex of towers and steeples. This formation went on to evolve, twice, into one of the most stunning and enigmatic circles seen in many years. A complex double triangle appeared at Liddington in Wilts, which too evolved, the top triangle continued elaborate parabolic curves. A formation in a field of linseed and poppies made for  a colourful and delicate formation, while a huge circle in Hampshire contained sixty-four square knots! The Rose at Milk remains one of our all time favourite circles – a simple six-fold flower contained within a large ring, was elegance itself. The year culminated with one of the most complex crop circles ever seen, below Hackpen Hill in Wiltshire. A huge, majestic cube, full of magical numbers and calendrical references to 2012 as the end of the Zodiacal age. The formation seemed to sum up perfectly the end of an era, paradigm and world age.
