With winter quickly approaching, at least here in the United States, I thought it appropriate to post a tribute to my favorite nature artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Although he uses a variety of natural elements in his works- stones, leaves, sticks, grass, feathers, and many other such things, I thought it fitting to only post some pictures as it pertains to winter with his use of snow and ice. Because of his choice to use nature as his artistic materials, his masterpieces quickly becomes obsolete, but thankfully he captures them on film immortalizing them forever. Thank you, Mr. Goldsworthy for your contribution to the art world and thank you for your vision to see something amazing in the simplicity of nature.
