I have spent many a day walking the high plaines of the AZ desert, the ripples that look like water you can see all over the desert where the desert
is flatish, a popular rock that these ripples form is moncopi sandstone and is very comon here on earth,
If you look close at the layered rocks scattered around (sedimentary?)it is the exact same color as the pond?, i can with almost certainty say that
this is left from when this area was last under water, the rippling effect is caused by small breaking waves assisted by wind,
as for this being Mars i can't say because the area looks so much like desert found in the four corners area of the USA, if you hadn't have
mentioned mars i would have said Arizona or New Mexico.
Fantastic picture and find Flag and star..
