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.
Haselor 2015: This spectacular crop circle lies between Alcestor and the small village of Haselor just off the A46 Stratford Road in the country of Warwickshire and was reported on the 19th of July. It measures approximately 250ft in diameter and is in a field of golden, ripening wheat. The central motif is that of an eight-fold star in which, (like the star at the Rollright Stones) the arms are knotted travelling over and under each other – giving a distinct Celtic knot feel to the design. A circle of standing crop seems to lock the star into place. A crescent moon is inscribed to one side of the central circular shape, then a thin ring surrounds the entire pattern creating the outer perimeter of the crop circle. Finally, a set of eight small satellite circles sit on the perimeter at equidistant intervals which correspond with the points of the star and a smaller-still ninth satellite circle sits between two of the aforementioned eight satellites. This formation looked spectacular in the landscape with the sun shining on the spun-gold of the wheat.
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.
