For those of us eagerly awaiting this years set of mysterious crop circles, have a look at what this amazing guy, Simon Beck created......
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. 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. Gradually, the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.” Spectacular art for the sake of exercise!
Incredible! Love it!
crazy ..amazing art wow
Could the same process be used to make the original crop circles in less time though because of not being in cold conditions nor snow??? food for thought..
Awesome work, talented man. Makes me question all I've read and seen about Crop Circles. Or Snow Circles??? Both are so precise, and large, that puzzles me in it's self?????
