A walk near Rockbourne. The field looked like it was contaminated but I was assured by a friend that the mix is deliberate.



  1. Looks like seed grew in tractor tracks later than the main crop – if that is possible.

    I wonder whether knowing what the phenomenon is makes one appreciate the photo differently. Eventually, by allowing an unaccustomed state of drift, I can see an owl peering at me. At a straigthforward viewing, the scene doesn’t quite reach abstraction and stays at a level of agricultural interest. I have a feeling that this would work better as a large print.

  2. It’s a scary owl once you’ve seen it.

    More a picture for asking questions than for long term viewing – but none the worse for that. Certainly passes the ‘hey, look at this!’ test.

  3. It’s striking in its construction, but I’m not sure the pattern is sufficient to carry the picture for a long time. The detail in the grain looks interesting though.

  4. Tractors? No that’s definitely the beginnings of a crop circle. Aliens ;-)

  5. Took a while for the owl to show itself, but once known it does leap out at you. It holds together very well but I do find that the thinning out (bottom right) in the crop a shame. Perhaps take a step ladder along next time…would be interesting to see this at a higher vantage point but still not square on.

  6. I like the geometry. Bare patch in the corner doesn’t bother as I’m drawn up and into the frame.
    I’m intrigued why only the green stalks are in the tracks.

  7. The questions about what has happened here to make the pattern are what make me look longer and more carefully.
