Amazing Snowshoe Artist

It's snowing a little here in Vermont today, raising hopes that some of the powder lost ot the recently ended January thaw will come back, and maybe I can go snowshoeing.
An example of Simon Beck's handiwork

If snowshoeing becomes possible again, I won't be as into it as a guy named Simon Beck, who goes out for ten hours at a time and creates huge, geometric artwork while carefully walking around on his snowshoes.

Of course Beck's  art doesn't live long, except in photographs, because of blowing snow, melting and fresh accumulations. I wonder if the brevity of his art frustrates him.

In any event, it's amazing how precise Beck is as he creates his wonderful geometric patterns.

I guess it's another reason to like winter.
