Chemical Corn Circle An aerial shot of a corn circle near Stonehenge. I have been following the corn circle phenomenon since it began in the 1980’s seeking them out and photographing them in remote fields in and around Wiltshire. There can be little doubt this crop circle represents the international symbol used to denote the presence of chemicals, a potential environmental and health biohazard. Biohazard is defined as "those infectious agents presenting a risk or potential risk to the well-being of man, either directly through his infection or indirectly through disruption of his environment." The photograph is a social comment on how we are responsible for the changes we are seeing in our environment and how this is upsetting the delicate balance of nature. It highlights the use of chemical pesticides in food production which wash into the water table and into our streams and rivers. Research has also confirmed the toxic effect that pesticides are having on our insect population, especially pollinating insects where we have witnessed a huge reduction in recent years. Pesticides have been discovered in beehives and are thought to contribute to “colony collapse disorder”, scientists are warning that the loss of biodiversity in the insect population will create problems in years to come as they play an essential role in plant and crop pollination.
