o Stunning Landscape Near Mamers Valles
  This region of Mars has been long studied for its evidence
  of glacial-like flow features.

o Layers in Northeast Sinus Meridiani

  Images like this will allow us to compare these layers with
  other layers, such study will shed light on the past environment
  of Mars.

o Martian M?lange

  These warm, enhanced colors are due to minerals altered by water,
  whereas the blue and green colors are from unaltered minerals such
  as olivine and pyroxene.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
