Snow Art

In Savie, France Simon Beck spends days plodding through the snow in snowshoes creating these sensational patterns. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields.  Beck designs and redesigns the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece due to significant overnight accumulations. Interestingly enough, he said, '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.  Spectacular art for the sake of exercise!
