Wow Wednesday!

This was too much to show on Mosaic Monday, so I am going
to call this Wow Wednesday!

I am happy to have the Spring weather but 
if I lived here... this is the one reason I would 
hate to see winter leave...











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.
