    Snow Quilts

    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

    Never be a prisoner of your past.
    It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.

    The mind boggles. How in the world does he get such symmetry?

    really amazing! (although I admit if I had that much time, I'd rather play games ;) )

    LOL @ the wheat fields idea!

    I've always been fascinated by water in all it's forms. Been studying up on a somewhat famous Japanese scientist that has been photographing nearly frozen water molecules that when subjected to certain concepts actually change the structure of the molecules frozen configuration without changing it's composition as water. This Mr. Beck seems to be doing a similar thing but by external instead of internal means and on a much larger scale. Dr. Emoto and Mr. Beck need to meet!
