French Man Walks Through Snow to Make Beautiful Art [Photos]

I usually don’t even glance at the all too familiar “forwarded email”. I’m glad I actually looked at the latest one I got from my boss. (I think it had something to do with the pretty pictures in it.)

This is totally cool and a bit mind-blowing if I may be honest.

It’s pictures of art — snow art! The following gallery of photos are from artist Simon Beck who plods along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France in snowshoes creating beautiful patterns of snow art.

Beck works from 5-9 hours each day making the art which is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning designs when viewed from higher levels.

How long each pattern remains is totally dependent upon the weather. Beck designs the patterns as new snow falls, sometimes unable to finish a piece if there is 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,” says Beck. “Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.”
