Amazing sand art on Somerset beach

People visiting Brean beach in North Somerset at the weekend had a real treat.

A sand artist had been busy creating this huge geometric design - and the photographer came across it just at the right moment. Robert Campbell - who took the perfect aerial view - says that if you zoom in you can just spot the artist, wearing a white cap.

Of course it was a case of 'blink and you'll miss it'. All that hard work was soon lost to the high tide.
