I also have put this beautiful vista on my desktop.

Ant, I believe I have asked before, but I too would like to use this image in my outreach presentations. I am very fond of the coloring you put into these images.

Thanks, Ron

Just to let you know, Ant, that your image wowed the crowds (well, I say crowds...! There were at least 30 people there...) in Cockermouth last night, with several "ooh!" and "aah"s heard when the pic flashed up on the screen.

Now, while we all wait for you to work your magic again, here's my take on April 28th's pics...

And a close-up of the special hills...

It's funny, they kinda look like the hills Spirit saw right after landing in Gusev. I wonder how they compare distance-wise.
That will be a sort of milestone when Oppy is as close to Endurance as Spirit was at landing to the Columbia Hills (however far that was, it's so long ago I can't remember exactly!)

The Columbia Hills were around 2.5 to 3 kms from the landing site. The closest bit we can see in Stu's view (the part on the left, Endeavour west rim) is something like 12 km away. Most of what you see in that view is Iazu, which is around 3 times farther away still. So when we're only a few km from the Endeavour rim, the view will be spectacular...

Thanks again, Ant. These are sure to induce even more desktop envy amongst my co-workers (heh, heh, heh! tongue.gif )
