Northfields, nr Twyford, Hampshire
This rather elegant ring and circle was yet another formation to occur on the old circle hunting ground of Hampshire. Hampshire was the location of many of the early formations in the 1980s, and while in later years Wiltshire gained favour with the circle-makers, its nice to have the formations appearing regularly in Hampshire again.
The seemingly simple nature of this formation is always gratifying to see, it harks back to the days of simple circles, rings and satellite or grapeshot circles – it keeps the origins of the phenomenon alive and always present.
The circle or ring is a representation of one. It signifies unity, the Divine, all that is. The ring encompasses (literally) it holds, and contains. It is a totality, a whole, an infinity and an eternity, it is without beginning or end. I concur completely with the renaissance philosopher Giordano Bruno when he said “It is Unity that doth enchant me.” It is from unity that all else springs forth, what a lesson that is for the World right now.
FYI: This formation features in our 2016 Crop Circle Photo Box-Set and you can see a section of 10 x 15 inch Photo Enlargements from this season here and 20 x 30 inch Photo Enlargements here. This formation also features in our Crop Circle Year Book 2016. Every sale helps us continue our work!
Please Help to keep us Flying: If you have enjoyed this site, looking at our pictures and information please consider making a small donation to keep us flying. There are so few of us left regularly recording the circles it’s really important that we continue. And while some now use drones to record the circles, it is important that there are still images taken from aircraft where the best quality camera equipment can be used and images that include the broad vista of the landscape can be taken. This kind of photography is expensive and it gets harder with each passing year to raise the funds we need to continue our work, but if everyone who regularly looked at this website made a small donation we would meet the funds we need. You can make a donation here.

Contemplating the circle (or in this case ring) is something that one often comes back to over and over again when studying Sacred Geometry – it is central to the mystery of number. The practice of bringing able to draw a circle with a compass in one sweep, where no beginning or end is discernible is an exercise that continues to exercise the most accomplished geometer! It’s a constant reminder of the perfection of the Divine.
Check back later for images as I have them.
