This picture was taken by the High Resolution Camera (HRSC) aboard ESA's Mars Express, in colour and 3D, during orbit 18 on 14 January 2004 from a height of 275 km. The location is in Valles Marineris at 5° North and 323° East. The area is 50 km across, at a resolution of 12 m per pixel, and shows mesas and cliffs as well as flow features which indicate erosion by the action of flowing water.
