What if the surface of Mars could be flooded to a depth of 20-meter? There would be islands where hills stand today. One of these islands would be this unnamed small island located in Ares Valles (16-lat - 30.4W lon). It would look like a barrier island, a 2-meter above water sand spit, shaped by tides and wind.
This is my first extraterrestrial island project. It took about 1-hour to complete. The circles scattered about are meteor plunks, most probably the large one's ejecta. The link to the Mars Odyssey website gives the curious reader loads of information about the area and the dry island features.
Perhaps if we pray for rain, Martian rain, and an increase in temperature, the seas will flow once again and this small island will live once more.
