If the photographer's mantra is "location, location, location", then Mars is one photogenic place.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Caltech has been releasing a series of new imagery captured by its various orbiters and rovers at the Red Planet. They show kaleidoscopic landscapes of forms and colors. Imagine what will emerge, as well as the science uncovered, when actual "boots on the ground" are walking around sampling and photographing on the surface!
