Armed with just a compass, a sketch, marker sticks and his own two feet, Simon Beck creates transient masterpieces in the Alps and beyond. With some drawings covering an area of 2-8 soccer fields and taking up to 12 hours to complete, assistants would definitely prove handy, however not many people can cope with such strenuous exercise in the cold.

High-quality snapshots are essential to capture the beauty of these creations.
