SUMMARY: These images, of the Ausonia Mensa massif, were taken by ESA's Mars Express spacecraft. This region is a large remnant mountain, 3,700 metres (12,100 feet) high. It's covered by several large impact craters, some of which are partially filled with sediment, and in various stages of erosion.

Interesting image at top, it almost looks like a car underneath a giant tarp - same colour as the surrouding landscape! Very bizarre.
