The road ahead, Curiosity sol 1100
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Mars, Curiosity (Mars Science Laboratory)
Curiosity took the images for this panoramic view of Mount Sharp on sol 1100 (September 10, 2015). Ahead to the right are the ripple-topped basaltic sand dunes of the Bagnold dune field. Curiosity's path will take it to the right side of those dunes, then across a gap in the dune field below the Murray buttes (not visible here) before it begins to rise higher onto the mountain.
