About Smooth Ink-Jet (Giclée) Art Prints: These Prints prints are very high resolution ink jet prints printed onto thick cotton watercolour paper. They capture every nuance of the original works. These top quality reproduction prints are taken from ultra-high resolution digital files and are simply the best reproduction prints available. If you’re looking for the best – you’ve found it! Each print has a white border and is personally signed by Steve Alexander.
High quality acid free fine art smooth paper of 300gsm, is coated with a unique new ink jet receiving layer that gives a semi-gloss finish to the printed image. The coating is undetectable on the paper until the ink is applied, then it bursts forward with a subtle yet vibrant sheen. The surface coating gives a high depth of colour and is tough and highly resistant to scratches. We have chosen some of our favourite formations from recent years as choices for the prints.
Bratton 2016: Bratton Camp is a large Iron Age hill fort which sits on the top of Bratton Down at the western edge of the Salisbury Downs. The views from the top of this hill are magnificent and it’s popular with paraglider, walkers and kite flyers. The Westbury White horse sits on the eastern side of the hill and is approximately 400 years old, unlike the many other such horses in the Wiltshire landscape this one has had its original chalk covered with painted concrete to keep its appearance and shape. It is a strikingly beautiful location for crop circles, and there have been several around Bratton Camp in years past, this one lies not directly beneath the White Horse, but to the North of the horse. You can read more about the area here.
The circle is a very pretty six-fold flower with unusually shaped petals which are then decorated with parabolic net-like patterns. The centre contains a particularly fine standing ring, complete with off centre swirled crop.
This image shows the crop circle in its attending landscape captures the atmosphere, mood and power of the formation while it remained in the field.
