Emergent 5

Emerging flowers look quite different than their mature blooms.

 

For some incredible snow sculptures, check out this fellow:

 

Magnificent Geometric Snow Art by Simon Beck

For the past decade, Simon Beck has been decorating the mountains with his stunning mathematical drawings, created by running in snowshoes across the freshly laid snow. Each image takes him up to 11 hours to make and covers an area about 100m x 100m, requiring him to travel up to 25 miles as he marks out the pattern. 

Beck produces about 30 snow drawings every winter in the northern hemisphere, mostly in the Alps. He started 10 years ago doing it for fun and now it is his main occupation. “When you have a blank piece of paper you draw on it,” he says. “So drawing on a blank snowfall seemed like a natural thing to do”.

You can learn about the fine details of his process in this FAQ and see additional photos over on Facebook. He also published a book of his work titled Simon Beck: Snow Art

Both flowers and snow patterns are exquisite Mary

Lovely flower picture. The snow pictures are very impressive

You are so right about the blooms Mary, quite a difference.

You have opened my eyes, Mary
Mary MacADNski: You must have echinacea in your gardens.

It is bursting out of the screen Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Tulips are bursting out all over my house, Echinacea in my memory and on screen.
Still looks good though doesn't it. I like the snow patterns very much.
Mary MacADNski: It gets wider and wider every day.
I always like the spiky look at this stage.
