A piece of Mars: These large dunes are located in Kaiser crater, a big crater in the southern midlatitudes. The scene is 789×592 m across. Imagine standing on one of these monsters, and seeing nothing but pristine ripples criscrossing all over the place. (HiRISE ESP_029500_1330, NASA/JPL/University of Arizona)

  1. Something like this, perhaps? http://www.flickr.com/photos/midnightzulu/8435547018/in/photostream

    1. Very nice! Did you make that?

  2. This picture looks like blue sand with lighting crystals – beautiful. Yeah imagine that – what an adventure!

    1. The sand isn’t really blue, it’s more grayish. But I like to draw out the colors. Even a dark gray would be pretty exotic.
