  • 20Simon Beck didn't set out to become a world-renowned snowshoe artist, yet here he is.
  • The former cartographer was trained in engineering at Oxford, but has spent the past ten years making jaw-dropping art in the snow and sand using only his feet.
  • Beck uses geometrical and geographical tools to plot out his designs, but it's still baffling to see him walk exactly where he needs to to create them.
  • His designs can take 12 hours of walking or more, and he'll take around 40,000 steps for an average-sized piece.
  • It's beautiful, it's creative, it's exercise'and it's fleeting.
