We at Cools And Fools love to share the strange and the incredible and this fits both of those categories.
This is the incredibly stunning snow art by English artist Simon Beck living in the French Alps.
Simon creates pieces of art in the snow that have at times been the size of 3 football fields.
Battling wind and weather Simon works for up to 10 hours listening to Beethoven as he works.
Often he can work through the night only to find that the next day his artwork has been blown away by the wind or covered by fresh snow.
The first two hours can be spent setting out the lines of the design; Simon is an engineer by trade and insists on spending the time getting the design layout perfectly precise.
He shares his designs with the world using Facebook and has over 267,000 fans, pop over and take a look at more of his impressive work here Simon Beck Snow Art On Facebook
The walking can be perilous and dangerous and Simon will walk for miles in the fresh snow creating the designs.
Looking down from the mountains the artwork is simply stunning.
Walking in the cold, wind and snow is hard and at times very dangerous.

But it is worth it, when Simon is finished what is left are these incredible designs.
Another beautiful snow picture by Simon.
The dedication to do this is genius bordering on the insane, most people avoid a 5 minute walk in the snow to go to the shop to buy supplies but for Simon a walk in the snow can last up to 10 hours!
People on a ski lift are greeted by this incredible piece.
Pieces can last only a few hours as they are often covered by fresh snow or blown away by winds.
More impressive than the giant crop circles often seen around the world.

The quality of the detail is just too damn incredible to believe at times.

Simon has recently turned his hand to creating interesting sand creations similar to those in this Cools And Fools post of Andres Amador and his work.
The above image is a giant sand carving of the original Space Invaders video game.
