Footprint?

It looks like a footprint - but is it just made up of random impression in the rock?

 

Found on Chesil Beach 18th Jan 2014.

    Yes, I think it is just a figment of the human imagination.

    ...Which can play all sorts of tricks on us.

     

    The rock has other dimples and cavities, which strongly suggest to me that it contains/contained small clasts (other rock or maybe fossils) which have fallen out. The obvious triangular one is a clearly not a footprint.

     

    But keep looking.

    You never know what you might find.

    Seen something very similar were limpets have held on to rocks and made a cavity.
