A day on the wall of Gale crater, Mars
A day on the wall of Gale crater, Mars While working at Namib dune, Curiosity took advantage of relatively clear skies to shoot several images at the same spot on the rim of Gale crater, due north of the rover. Three of the photos were taken on sol 1246 (February 7, 2016), and two were taken on sols 1234 and 1235. NASA / JPL / MSSS / Thomas Appéré

The GIF animation reduces the quality of the color in the image, so here is a "before and after" comparison of two of the photos.
