The Great Toonolian Marshes and the Lost Sea of Korus
Spectacular - truly spectacular - Martian landscapes.
Since 2006, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting Mars, currently circling approximately 300 km (187 mi) above the Martian surface. On board the MRO is HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera, which has been photographing the planet for several years now at resolutions as fine as mere inches per pixel.

Amazing sights. I wish I had access to HiRISE-level resolution for my own research on Earth.
