    That's not Mars, that's El Coro.

    These are actual pictures of mars. So this is, truly, a landscape. Not a landscape painting that you don't get. If you had bothered to click the link you would be enlightened:

    Intersecting swirling trails left by the earlier passage of dust devils across sand dunes, as they lifted lighter reddish-pink dust and exposed the darker material below. Also visible are darker slope streaks along dune edges, formed by a process which is still under investigation.

    kinda what I thought of that shot originally as well. Crazy camera looking at skin and a old tattoo really close. But this is like 180 miles up, so things might be more open to interpretation. Part of what makes it so interesting. I dont even think that's the weirdest pic in the link!
