Have you ever walked in a fresh path of snow, felt the peace and quiet of the still world around? If not I strongly suggest getting out and setting some fresh tracks in some snow that nobody has touched. I promise it will be a life changing experience that words won’t be able to do justice.
A man by the name of Simon Beck has taken that to a whole new level. Spending hours and hours in freshly fallen snow. The peace and quiet are his muse and the snow his palette. What he creates is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and has touched me in ways I cannot explain.
So for the inner peace and artist in all of us. Let this be an inspiration to go out at the signs of the next snowfall, get up early put on your winter gear and head out. With a blank slate just start creating whatever comes to mind and by the end of your journey you’ll be different than when you started. Happy stomping.
It’s possible you’ve never heard of Simon Beck, but after today, you won’t be able to forget him or his wintry works of art. Simon is an artist and is most well-known for making incredibly delicate and detailed art in the snow, just by walking over a fresh snowfall. He literally walks miles in the snow to create these pieces. And the part that blows our minds? He could spend hours upon hours creating one design, just to have it be covered by snowfall or blown away by the next day. But he still makes them.
Simon walks over layers of fresh snow in special shoes to create his mind-boggling art.
He can easily walk for miles just to create one design.
But the results are worth all of the effort. In fact, they are mesmerizing.
The most interesting thing about this art, though, is Simon creates it knowing it could be gone the very next day.
These delicate patterns were created in the beautiful Savoie Valley in France, overlooking Mont Blanc.
Simon found spaces in between lodges and mountains at the Les Arcs ski resort to create his masterpieces.
He creates large, mathematical patterns that have different effects when viewed from different angles.
At different times during the day, his creations will look different.
It”s just hard to believe that he spends countless hours making these…
Only to know that they will be gone from this world within a matter of hours or days.
