Man walks all day to create massive snow patterns



Via AngelicView, 15 December 2013


English artist Simon Beck never ceases to amaze us with his large-scale murals of geometric patterns in snow. Each visually breathtaking piece, which Beck manually creates by walking through the snow and leaving behind his track prints, adds a surreal element to its natural landscape. Walking countless miles on end, the dedicated artist manages to produce startlingly symmetrical and elaborate designs on the soft, white bed of snow that covers acres upon acres of land.

The beautifully plotted details of the artist’s work complement the untouched expanse of snow and ice capped mountains that surround them each year.
