British "snow artist" Simon Beck has been making incredible large-scale pieces of art for over a decade, using virgin snow as his canvas and snowshoes (on his feet) as his paintbrush.  

His most recent pieces are inspired by geometry, in the form of natural fractals.  

Beck, an engineer with a degree from Oxford who works as a map-maker and orienteer when he's not out tramping through the snow, first plots out his designs on a computer. 

The artworks cover a huge area, sometimes up to the size of six football fields.

Each piece takes hours upon hours of heavy-duty physical work and requires an enormous amount of concentration and stamina to complete.

Beck has just published a book with over 200 photos of his winter art.
