Still in the last stages of an extended beading period, “Alluvial Fan” represents a beach in Baja California off the Sea of Cortez. Ocean tides push and pull water across the expanse of beach, via a main river channel which fans out over time, distributing sand and silt. A broad belt of dry sand to the west (left side) follows the curve of the fan and stretches out along a road that runs parallel to the shoreline.
