    Man Walks All Day to Create Spectacular Snow Patterns.



    Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie , France , he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels.How long these magnificent geometric forms survive is completely dependent on the weather. Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations.

    "The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise. Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera". - Simon Beck

    Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
    A morning filled with 400 billion suns
    The rising of the milky way"

    If we do not destroy ourselves
    We will one day venture to the stars" -Carl Sagan

    I love stories like this.

    I watched street artists showing off their art right down the street from my apartment, and I was fascinated by all the optical illusions.

    I'm always amazed at how this can even be achieved. Not the walking, but the pattern. Like crop circles................how to you do the design part piece by piece like that? Probably why I got D's in Geometry. Thanks for posting this. I love seeing what amazing things people do in this world.
    The Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about
