Curiosity at the north edge of the Kimberley, sol 581
The HiRISE photo of Curiosity at the Kimberley was taken from orbit on March 26, 2014. It was sol 581 on the Curiosity mission, and the rover had just bumped a couple of meters toward the north edge of the outcrop of the "striated unit" at the Kimberley. The photo has been colorized with data from an earlier HiRISE image taken on August 4, 2010.

The original images are ESP_035917_1755 (rover) and ESP_018854_1755 (color).

Here's a detail view of the rover:
