o The Northwest Floor of Gale Crater

  The light-toned deposits within the lobes of a small impact
   crater might contain hydrated minerals.

o The Southern Floor of Gale Crater

  An enigmatic deposit inside a small crater on the floor of Gale
  Crater appears to have flowed into the crater from the south.

o The Dune Sea of Ganges Chasma

  This image is at the eastern edge of a very large deposit of
  wind-blown dust that occupies Ganges Chasma.

o Night Vision

  This image was taken to look at seasonal frost in gullies during
  southern winter on Mars, with the Sun only about two degrees over
  the horizon, as opposed to the typical 15 degrees.
All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
