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.
Forest Hill 2014: Without doubt one of the most stunning circles of the 2014 season. The formation arrived on the 16th of July at Forest Hill, close to Marlborough in Wiltshire. The beautiful spiral of standing circles was reminiscent of ‘half tone’ printing, where dots of different sizes are used to create the shading of an image. In addition to its magnificent design, the floor lay inside the circle was also of note. Sadly, this circle lasted only a few hours before it was cut from the field.
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.
