Snow Circles

It never fails to astound me what people can do given enough time and determination. In this case, take a pair of snow shoes and a fresh coat of powder and the result is one of the most beautiful outdoor displays you’re ever likely to see. These snow drawings by Sonja Hinrichsen take cues from their crop circle cousins sans the pseudo-science, to create a sprawling visual canvas. In a year when we’ve seen so little snow here in North Carolina, this video and the accompanying images over on Flickr are a sight for sorry eyes.
