2005 CROP CIRCLES
16th July 2005
On my way to visit a new friend near Glastonbury, as
we drove over a hill south of Bath (July 10th), we saw this “Crows Foot”
formation in a field below us. We pulled off into the farm track and
met a couple of croppies who were on their way out. The lay looked nice
and fluffy, with a few “magical” standing stalks, and very little crop
springing back up.
The design consists of three radiating rows of
circles emanating from a small triangle, starting about 8 feet in
diameter, and getting progressively larger as the circles go out. The
top of the design is encircled by a ring. The thing that struck me was
that the circles in the “toes” of the crow’s foot were scaled so that
when viewed from the triangular “heel,” they seemed to be all the same
size, yet clearly they were ever-larger as they went off into the
distance -- a trick of perspective.
