Trees on Mars?

A HiRISE image from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter showing trees on Mars... or so it appears!

(Image from this page - check out the "subimage")

Explanation from the page:

There is a vast region of sand dunes at high northern latitudes on Mars. In the winter, a layer of carbon dioxide ice covers the dunes, and in the spring as the sun warms the ice it evaporates. This is a very active process, and sand dislodged from the crests of the dunes cascades down, forming dark streaks.

Another discovery on the fine pages of batchbatcharak.

Nice desktop wallpaper (author unknown) found for me by batchbatcharak

BTW:

If you haven't met the very useful "site:" option in Google search before, which restricts your search to a particular site, try this link for fun (it produces a lot of good photos):

[All images from big-photography.com (paged!)]

(you can refine the search by adding further keywords in the Google search box like animals or landscape, or playing with Google's Search tools)



"Sweet Dawn" by Diane Varner - from her Daily Walks along the Northern California coastline and mountain trails
(seascapes, landscapes, insects, animals, found objects and macro images)

One of many fine things to be found on the pages of batchbatcharak.



"Morning" by Nikolay Popov (tooDee)

I am one of those rare people who are almost immune to caffeine, but after a working life of early starts I recognize the feeling!
