You have to remember that a circling approach is a part of an instrument approach where the final part can not be completed without maintaining visual reference with the runway.

No two circling approaches are the same.

Many variables are considered.
Runway layout
Final Approach Track
Wind speed and
Weather conditions

If you perform a circling approach and you do not stick to the obstacle area, you risk descending into an obstacle.
