After being unable to afford to fly of nearly three
weeks(!), yesterday I had a free helicopter flight courtesy of Steven
Javor, who chartered the aircraft to film circles for Nippon TV. It was
a splendid flight, and I caught up on all the recent formations that
have appeared in Wiltshire. (Thanks Steven!!!)
The first I've prepared for display is this superb formation which
appeared July ??, in wheat, in the field adjoining the North-East
quadrant of Avebury -- where so many great formations have appeared over
the years. It is obviously in the same family as 2001's formation below
Windmill Hill -- which was my favourite last summer.
Although I have removed the walk lines and tramlines from within the
masterpiece, I left IN the walk lines that lead to the formation,
because there are so many and so bold that they make a rather attractive
fractal -- I've never done that before! I have also made subtle
corrections to the geometry.
The close up shows the beautiful lay of the crop -- despite being
frequently visited by Avebury tourists.
