This image of the Imhotep region on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko shows a range of features including curvilinear features in the smooth material (left) and terraces close to a basin-like feature (centre). To the top, a number of quasi-circular features can be seen.

The image was acquired with Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera on 5 September 2014 from a distance of 43.5 km from the comet centre. The image scale is 80 cm/pixel.
