Wordless Wednesday: Mars

I’ve been entrenched in the cluttering stage of decluttering for what seems like weeks now, which gives me an added appreciation for the minimalist Martian landscape.

Mount Sharp

The sky isn’t really that blue, and the landscape is a mosaic of lots of little shots. But even knowing that the photo has been altered to appeal to the Earthling eye, I can’t help but be soothed by it.

That boulder with the little white square on it is the size of Curiosity, and about five miles away.

Look Ma! I’m here!

A portion of Mount Sharp, on Mars is pictured in this panorama made from a mosaic of images taken by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity September 20, 2012 and released as a NASA handout image March 15, 2013. The photo has a white-balanced color adjustment that makes the sky look overly blue but shows the terrain as if under Earth-like lighting. (Photo: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
