Simon Beck walks several miles in fresh snow with nothing but an expedition compass and a pair of snowshoes to make these extraordinary pieces. They only last a day and then are covered by new fallen snow.
Some of his masterpieces require 10 hours of work.
Mr. Beck has walked over 24 miles for one single design.
“Often I am copying designs I have found, like crop circles or well-known mathematical figures, or repeating designs I have made earlier but failed to get good photos of.”
Mostly Mr. Beck makes these magnificent snow designs in France, where he lives during ski season, and photographs them afterward.
