Not true, I'm here and I listen smile
There is just no way this was created at random, Dave. That is so damn perfect! I have no theories, just can't believe it.

David Johnson: Well digi is probably right, different layers of sand running over each other, odd though!
That looks like a whachamacallit. Yeah, that is what it is. Definitely.
Very cool shot of it.
David Johnson: Thingumebobs! Odd though!
I have not the faintest idea of what it is but I do know I like the picture. Like an abstract painting.
David Johnson: Mother Nature and her broad canvas!
Nice shot - really liking the colours but haven't got a clue what it is!
David Johnson: Digi seems to have nailed it, just odd to come across a pool a find it though!
It is a sand pattern created by the water draining out of a layer of sand that has a different grain size than the underlying sand. The Pembrokshire sands are particularly good for sand patterns.

This is a particularly good example.
David Johnson: See I new an expert would enlighten us all, thanks old cobber!
It looks like some kind of artwork - an underwater frieze. An interesting specimen.

David Johnson: Natures art on show for 12 1/2hours and then gone again!
This looks like a prehistoric forest! Until I read the other comments I assumed it was created by you. It's amazing.
David Johnson: Hey Bill I can fiddle some things in Pshop but this would really have hurt my brain, crazy isn't it!
Whatever it is, it is utterly amazing. Lovely, lovely, lovely! (:o)
David Johnson: Thanks Ros, I was actually a bit iffy about this one!!!!!

I'm here as well, admiring your picture of this "thingamajiggy". When I first saw it I thought it was a winter woodland scene that had been given some fancy art treatment. But no. So what a wonderful find, and what luck that you were there with your camera to find it. Congratulations.
David Johnson: Yep, a quick call to Mother Nature and she tells me where all the good stuff is.....yeh!
It is exactly as digi describes. This pattern is created in nature in many , many forms. Just two - the circulatory system abd trees - both above and below ground. Lovely example.
David Johnson: I always thank Mother Nature for her best efforts as I wouldn't be able to record half the stuff I do without her help!

Never seen one as intricate as this - looks like underwater plants rather than underwater sand. Bizarre.
David Johnson: Truly odd and gone once the tide comes back, quite sad really!
this looks like it was taken in outer space of a series of river tributaries ..truly brilliant abstract
David Johnson: Its all that stumbling about that helps me find this stuff, outer space, yep, I see what you mean.
I saw this at 6.00am on Saturday morning before leaving for the hills and dales beyond Bakewell. but had no time to comment and win the prize...ha . Trust that old bof' Digi to come up with more or less the right answer Ha! An absolutely gutted richard.
David Johnson: Good man for trampling Bakewell into submission though!
Thanks for sharing, it's amazing.
David Johnson: The world needs to know about these things
get this everyday at blackpool,you dont have to go to wales for it.like it.
David Johnson: But here the Prom was a) The Griffin Pub b) a place to hire a wet suit and there was no c).......no flashy lights.....no pigeons.....no chippys...no Tower...I did see I seal...and some dinghys any way those things are made up of that great euphamism.."|Estuary Mud" up in tut'Pool so they don't count, I know Ive trodden in em
Great image - good colours and with that grainy effect I can almost feel the sand between my toes!
