It might just be mud but i like the ripple pattern on the side of the tidal pool Chris....petersmile
Chris: This is the Bristol Channel Peter: the second highest tidal range in the world, second only to your Bay of Funday
What beautiful patterns it makes!
Chris: It looks pretty but you wouldn't want to get too near it Elizabeth!

Water and mud, make the most beautiful patterns. Is this the industrial area of Bath?
Great shot.
Chris: This is a place called Portishead near Bristol and the water & mud are in what we call the Bristol Channel Astrid: it has the second highest tides in the world

I thought of the Bristol Channel before I read your reply on Astrid's comment! First I thought MUD may be a sort of abbreviation, but now I know, yes, mud and sand when the flood is receding - and a fascinating silhouette of busy, modern harbour life in the background. A fined photograph, even in b&w (sorry)! I would like to see one day this situation at Bristol Channel, I read/heard only of that "highest tidal range".
Chris: I think you would be impressed by the scale of the Bristol Channel at low tide Philine

Just heard an item on the radio saying that the storms earlier this year have pulled the sand from our beaches and dumped it further out to sea than usual and it is only slowly coming back.

I like the patterns, but also the contrast between the beauty of nature and the human 'progress' beyond.
Chris: Thank you Mike. The things nature & the elemental powers does with sand & mud is a thing to behold

...nothing quite like it
For cooling the blood...
Chris: So they say Ray..
An apt title!
Chris: Horrible isn't it..
'Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood', Flanders and Swan,I believe..smile
Chris: Yes I think you're right Frank
I lived on the Bay of Fundy where there are the highest tides in the world and have seen similar areas with tidal bores. It is quite a sight to see. Mud is the perfect word to describe it.
Chris: I wouldn't like to have this to look at all day really Mary
I remember staying in Somerset and our daughter played in some of this at low tide, she was covered from head to foot!
Chris: I bet Maureen was thrilled!
A fabulous capture of this Natural phenomenon, Chris.
Chris: And there's a heck of a lot of it Bev
A far cry from the Sandy beach at Exmouth
Chris: As far as you can get really
