Crop Circles in the Snow
October 25, 2012
These snow designs are the work of Simon Beck.
“They are made by a kind of reverse orienteering,” he explains. “The main lines and points are surveyed using a sighting compass, with distance either by pace counting or string.”
It can take Beck hours to create his designs. But why the trouble ?
“The main reason for making them was because I can no longer run properly due to problems with my feet, so plodding about on level snow is the least painful way of getting exercise. Gradually the reason has become photographing them, and I am considering buying a better camera.”
