Artist Walks For Hours To Create Snow Art

With an orienteering compass in hand and TSL snowshoes on his feet, Simon Beck creates amazingly intricate but enormous designs in fresh snow, one step at a time.

Last year the works of art Beck created near his home in France found a worldwide internet audience. This month, we checked in with him and verified that he plans to make new snow art creations as winter intensifies in 2014.

Here are 10 photos of artwork that Beck has created with his own two feet. —Amy Oberbroeckling
