A simulated view of the northwest flank of Mount Sharp using images and digital terrain models from HiRISE. The view is toward the southwest. It covers Curiosity's path from the Murray Buttes in the foreground, to the southern extent of the Bagnold dune field in the middle ground, and the Hematite Ridge beyond it. Beyond Hematite Ridge, the landscape steepens dramatically. For an enormous version of this image, visit Doran's Flickr page.

Curiosity took the images for this panoramic view of one of the Murray buttes with its left Mastcam on sol 1432 (August 16, 2016). Seán Doran added a figure of an astronaut in the photo in order to provide a sense of scale.
