HiRISE view of Opportunity, sol 3361 HiRISE captured this photo of Opportunity on the rover's sol 3361, July 8, 2013. At the time, the rover was taking advantage of summer sunlight to drive southward along the rim of Endeavour crater from Cape York (at the top of the photo), past Sutherland Point and Nobby's Head (at the center of the photo), toward Solander Point (at the bottom). Opportunity is just past halfway from Nobby's Head to the northern tip of Solander Point.

RGB image has been overlaid on the higher-resolution red-channel image, and a small blur applied to reduce the distracting effect of noise.

Here is a view at full resolution containing Opportunity (just above and left of center):
