Simon spends hours, anywhere from 5-9 hours or until he’s tired, making snow art. Most of the designs are simple geographic shapes… but they are far from simple. Standing next the snow art one cannot comprehend the complexity of what has transpired. You must pull back and look down upon them to truly appreciate what has been created.
His choice of canvas is the snow in the French Alps. He uses a sighting compass and measures distance with either pace counting or a string. He wears snowshoes for many of these designs but sometimes he does them sans snowshoes. Fresh snow is the best and despite the fact that his art will be gone within hours or by the next day, he is still out there creating beauty.

Happy Xmas everyone and don’t forget to share the beauty.
