This stunning snow art was created by one man and his compass

Posted by in offbeat

Simon Beck is the world's first snow artist.

His pieces requires an enormous physical effort: they cover an area between two and nine acres and can take up to 12 hours to complete. Beck walks between 20-30 kilometres in snowshoes, using a compass to help to create the complex geometric patterns.

Snow Art is the artist's first book and is a collection of his work over the past 10 years:
