Snow Quilts

Simon Beck walks all day across the frozen lakes of Savoie, France to create beautiful quilt patterns in the snow. Each takes him about 5-9 hours to create to the finished size of three soccer fields, however sometimes snowfalls prevent him finishing his work. Simon walks on raquettes (snow shoes) to create the intricate patterns and says that his initial reason for doing so was for exercise as he can no longer run due to feet problems. Now, he more enjoys taking photographs of his creations and is considering buying a new camera! Go to mymodermmet for more great pictures and click here for a recent updatesnow quiltsnow quilt 2
