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.
Etchilhampton 2012: This massive event at Etchilhampton, was about 600 feet in length, and resembled a string of pearls. There were various intricate nests and splays in the centre of some of the circles. The backdrop for this formation was the chalk Millennium White Horse, which can be seen in the distance in the poster for sale in the larger enlargement section of our shop. The farmer gave permission for people to visit this crop formation, and many did. This was a highlight of the 2012 season.
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.
