Illuminated by the rising sun, an alluvium deposit fans out across an endorheic basin in Gypsite, CA. Water runoff in this extreme climate evaporates quickly, leaving existential markings on the Earth’s surface. Some of these markings span for miles and and take on unique shapes when viewed from a high altitude. This photograph was taken from an aircraft as part of an aerial study of endorheic basins across Southern California. Illuminated by the rising sun, an alluvium deposit fans out across an endorheic basin in Gypsite, CA.
