Same day, but in the opposite direction... (mosaic of 4 panCam images):

There are at least two different kind of rocks...

Great image! It looks like a hillside of three-cornered rocks. Do you suppose that they have been faceted by the wind blowing from three different directions?

It seems reasonable, due to common orientation of faces... however, i'm not a geologist! rolleyes.gif
Anyway, there are also some rocks in the left portion with stronger erosion and without clear faceting orientation...

Lousy image Doug. Not a single dust devil. Man, who hired the help here? <grin>

Wow, great panorama !

this view will be hard to top, even from the columbia top wink.gif


BTW: Erwan, do you think this pan could also be done in your
fine POV-Ray technique (with distortion-free rectangular outline ?)



P.S.: I still bet that Oppy's Pictures from Victoria Crater (if we get there)
will be the most impressive of the whole mission smile.gif

ok, this is so beautiful I had to colorize this (low resolution) version by hand:

not "real true" color of course (but who know the real colors of Mars
anyway wink.gif

this one took me quite a while to work on .. even in the low-res version
I tried to avoid the usual monochromatic look of automatically colorized
b/w pictures ....

hope you enjoy it smile.gif

The lens flare, while not accurate, does make the image seem more authentic, somehow.. Regardless, it's a beautiful image, with a nice contrast between the lowlands far off to the left and the weird craggy rock thing a stone's throw away on the right. Nice work.

ok, I finished the hand-colorizing of the first part of the
high resolution panorama.

as with one-band b/w images we have no way to correctly reproduce the
colors, so I decided to add my own interpretation of various
martian shades of red smile.gif

Here is another attempt at a b/w colorization: Part of the "uphill" panorama
taken on sol 445 with the pan cam. However, only one filter was used on each side.. so I had to colorize it "from scratch" ...

Even I guess we haven't seen yet the true Mars. If NASA/JPL would be able to do that, then they would provide us such views constantly.

BTW, what means "I finished the hand-colorizing of the first part of the
high resolution panorama."? It was finish! laugh.gif

Your Mars imagination looks definitely redder than my imagination smile.gif
