We start with images from a renowned artist creating fleeting sculptures in snow and ice. We end with nature’s own snow and ice art as captured by anonymous photographers and collected by Bored Panda.
Andy Goldsworthy, is a British artist whose stunning art explores the natural world. Much of it lasts mere minutes before being washed or blown away. Goldsworthy says, “Movement, change, light, growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature. Each work grows, stays, decays. Process and decay are implicit. Transience in my work reflects what I find in nature.” Below his images captivate with the materials of snow and ice.
Many thanks to Brenda for forwarding the Andy Goldsworthy selection.
and to Jill and Bored Panda for the individual selections.
Strangely enough, I couldn’t find a website for Andy Goldsworthy. So here’s a link to a catalog of his images from 1976 – 1986.
Some of these photo’s look like NY does now ~

Amazing photos never seen snow , makes me desire to
more than ever.
“Wow”–All I can say, again, is “WOW” !
The artists and the nature art are both amazing!!!!!
Where do you live?
Oh Dusky! For some years now, I’ve been just awed by the photos you exhibit, but I have to say that THIS group has to be the most amazing of all! Nobody does it better than Mother Nature! And thanks for lifting my “winter dumps” mood…Not everything in the winter is hard and cold…some is very beautiful for sure…L
awesome how mother loves to show off
The artists did some very nice sculptures. But to my mind, mother nature topped them. It’s too bad that it all will melt, although the person who can’t get out of the house would probably disagree with that.
Love, save and forward all your pictures!!!
To say the photos are amazing does not do it. .In this most difficult time the world has ever gone through, a light called “Dusky’s Wonder Site” was able to lift us up to where we will be in the near future.Many cheers to Dusky for giving us mana in the wilderness.

Dusky. Want you to know how much your posts mean to us. They are uplifting and calming. Viewing these photos provides a lovely break in our day Thank you again for sharing.
We very seldom get snow, and when we do it’s usually a light dusting. The images you’ve collected are fascinating, but Mother Nature’s images are awesome! The trees tall and straight with the snow on the front of them, took my breath away. Thank you for sharing.
Just one word……………WOW!!!!
only God can make such beauty
Absolutely fantastic photos. Thank you very much.
