Reconstruction of theEtchilhampton Hill 15-08-2006 formation | |||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Copy circle 1 four times, to the intersections of circle 1 and the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 to the righthand intersection of righthand circle 2 and the horizontal centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own righthand intersection. | ||||

4. |
Repeat step 3 eight more times, to create (together with righthand circle 2 and circle 3) ten tangent circles on a row, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Repeat steps 3 and 4 three more times, relative to the other three circles 2, and in the other three directions, horizontally and vertically. This will yield twenty tangent circles on a row, horizontally as well as vertically, as shown. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the tangent point of the fourth and fifth circles 4. | ||||

7. |
Draw ten lines, the first from the upper intersection of the first of circles 2 and 5 vertically (up) and the vertical centerline to the righthand intersection of the last circles 2 and 4 (horizontally) and the horizontal centerline, the second from the corresponding intersections of the second of circles 2 and 5 to the second last circles 2 and 4, and so on, as shown. | ||||

8. |
Repeat step 7 three times, for the other three quadrants, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the first and last lines 7, tangent to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 three times, to the corresponding intersections in the other three quadrants. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, passing through the center of the rightmost circle 4, and through its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

12. |
Repeat step 11 three times, for the three other corresponding circles on the horizontal and vertical centerlines, as shown. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 11 three times, to the intersections of the first and second, second and third, and third and fourth lines 7. | ||||

14. |
Repeat step 13 for the last four lines 7, as shown. | ||||

15. |
Draw three lines, tangent to circle 11 and successive circles 13, all at the upper sides, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Repeat step 15, for upper circle 12 and successive circles 14, all at the righthand sides. | ||||

17. |
Repeat steps 13 and 14 three times, for the other three quadrants. | ||||

18. |
Repeat steps 15 and 16 three times, for the other three quadrants. | ||||

19. |
Circles 6, 9, 10, 11 and 12, lines 7, 8, 15, 16 and 18, and the horizontal and vertical centerlines make up all the required elements for the reconstruction. | ||||

20. |
Remove all parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

22. |
...or to flattened crop, which will finish the reconstruction of the Etchilhampton Hill formation of 15-08-2006. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
