o What Gullies Can Say

  Right past the sharp, but warped rim of this ancient impact crater
  are deposits of winter frost, which show up as blue in enhanced color.

o The Busy Flank of Arsia Mons

  This observation shows an incredible diversity of ancient lava tubes
  and impact craters filled with sediment on the flank of Arsia Mons.

o At the Edge of a Polar Cap

  Formative down-slope winds descending on Mars' North Polar ice cap
  likely play an important role in transporting sediment.

o Global Eyes on an Impact Prize

  Finding a new dark spot with the Mars Color Imager, HiRISE can
  literally zoom in to show better details of a new impact crater, an
  example of coordination among science teams.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
