Photo enhancement by "Stormin' Norman" Brydon - Surfing The Apocalypse, website.
Click the headline to be taken to the HIRISE website at the University of Arizona and a bunch of supposedly hi-res photos of the surface of Mars. No faces on Mars, sorry. Conspicuously, no ruined cities, no broken alien machinery or even seashells but heck, when you buy a postcard at the museum you don't get to see ALL the photos the photographer took.... right?
You CAN play with these images by zooming in, resizing and playing with the colorations - keeping in mind that the colors are only close guesses under weaker light and strange climate conditions. The image of "water" flowing into a "river" pictured above for instance MAY or MAY NOT have a green effect around it. Few melting glaciers on Earth, do either.
Google Earth has a new challenge.
