On July 18 I went to the long string of circles and dumbbells in wheat at All Cannings bridge and got some pole shots with my video camera. Although I of course took shots of the large circles and rings, they were all panning shots because I couldn’t possibly fit such large features into a single frame.
There was a woman there from Sweden walking around each circle three times, and I followed her because she gave the crop circle the human perspective. Consequently most of my shots have her
in them. ;o)
Here are also a detail shot of the liquid flow on the edge of the smallest ring, and the splayed stalks in the centre of the third (I think) circle.
Measurements of the All Cannings pictogram
I first got REALLY serious about crop circles in 1990 when the "pictogram" crop formations started appearing. So out of curiosity this evening I went to All Cannings to measure the long string of circles and rings near the bridge there. The formation is 722 feet from the grapeshot at the bottom to the tiny circle at the top. The largest circle and ring is 146 ft. in diameter.
In comparison, the pictogram that appeared at the West Overton T-junction in 2003 was 656 feet from the smallest feature at the top to the smallest at the bottom. And its largest circle and ring were 118 feet in diameter.
To put these in historical perspective, the world famous 1990 Alton Barnes pictogram was 390 feet long. And the largest one that year was the 400 footer on Allington Down fifteen days later. (Sizes based on George Wingfield's articles in The Cereologist #2.)
I like to think that the Circlemaking intelligence -- WHATever that is -- is continuing its dialog with us.
