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.
Maiden Castle 2015: This crop circle was first reported on the 26th of July and is situated below the magnificent Maiden Castle hill fort in Dorset. It measures approximately 300ft in diameter and is in a field of mature wheat. The circle is an intriguing design, with a simple flattened circle at the centre followed by a plain ring. Next is a very thin ring with several circles of differing sizes sat upon it. They are asymmetrically placed and look incredibly like planets on an orbit. Finally, the wide outer ring is filled with six equal sections of varying standing bands and boxes – giving it a faintly computer chip feel. It looked very striking in the late afternoon sunshine. It was certainly a interesting juxtaposition of old and new, the ancient hill fort and the modern crop circle. You can read more bout this crop circle here.
