No, aliens haven’t chosen a more wintry medium in which to leave their mark.
These snowy ‘crop circles‘ are in fact the work of a lone artist who has spent hours, and a whole lot of effort, trudging around a French ski resort.
The patterns, some of which span the size of six football pitches, come in a range of designs from intricate snowflakes and spirals to cubes and rather more abstract creations.

Simon Beck uses what he describes as a ‘kind of reverse orienteering’ to plot his intricate paths before walking along the route in a pair of snowshoes.
‘The main lines and points are surveyed using a sighting compass (as used for surveying orienteering maps) with distance (established) either by pace counting or string,’ explains Mr Beck on his Yahoo Groups! page.

‘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.’

  2. And mind that he does it all in spite of pain, as it’s his best exercise! Heaven ALWAYS allows us more than we formerly did, as soon as we BELIEVE:
    Just trust:

    open just like that?
