In NZ Stunning swirls of beach art rasie money for Protect Our Winters

English land artist Simon Beck spent hours creating a sandy masterpiece on Auckland's west coast yesterday.
Beck, who is working with New Zealand outdoor apparel company Icebreaker, spent five-and-a-half hours raking the sand at Maori Bay, just north of Muriwai.
The 55-year-old was working towards a 12-pointed star design, but managed only half of it because of the incoming tide.
Before the water reached the high-tide mark - which was at the centre of his design - Beck had covered an area 200m long and 70m wide.
The artist is working with Icebreaker to raise money for the not-for-profit group Protect Our Winters, which is dedicated to raising awareness around the impact of climate change.
As part of the partnership, Beck's snow and sand drawings feature as designs on Icebreaker products in the company's Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
Some of the proceeds from the products sales will go towards Protect Our Winters.
