I have often viewed pictures of anomalies from the Moon and Mars, on this site, but quite often my eyes see a `dome` and then a `crater`, confusing the hell out of me. So when I found these pictures on the HiRISE section of the NASA site, I thought that I had better get some other opinions.

These pictures seem to show uplifted, shards of rock to me, and I wondered if the removed/censored anomalies of the Moon, could have been remnants of the same kind of thing.

The pics are from `The Walls of Noctus Labyrinthus`.

I went to the HiRISE website, found the first picture.

The other three have me puzzled, I can't find them on the HiRISE menu...they seem to be zoomed in versions of the first one.

There are some good photo experts here on ATS, so I'm anxious to see what they say....

Interesting pics.

Thanks for posting them.

I don't see anything too unusual about them though?

It looks like light colored sand dunes on a darker surface to me.

Honestly, to me it looks like snow. after a really windy day, as the snow blows in the cold winds, there is a large formation that blocks the remaining snow allowing it to stay where it is, but the wind that blows over its surface freezes it.

They are zoomed from the bottom left corner of the first one

Going with sand dunes on this one

Too windy for flying.

Sorry, I should have stated that the following pics 2,3,4, are zooms of the original.

I just thought that they bore a likeness to the lunar spires/towers. My first thoughts on seeing the lunar examples was that they were uplifts, of a harder more ancient rock, that became semi-molten when the surface was struck and then quickly cooled again...something like a freeze frame of a drop of liquid hitting a surface, and briefly forming a `crown`.

I am not sure about doing the `uploads`, which image link to use etc

I thought that the rules prohibited putting the actual images on the site, because of space and traffic.?

I noticed you mentioned in the OP you had difficulty with dome/crater visualization. Sometimes rotating the image 90% or flipping it will help.

In the full size image you can see the cliffs and rills with a flat floor with ripples.(dunes) but your right these ones do have a spire look to them. With the winds and sand moving on Mars it seems logical to find wind blown spires somewhere on Mars, just like out here in the Nevada and south-west desert. The wind and time can create some really odd rock structures

I do usually look at the big picture to get myself orientated with the shadows etc...I will try flipping the images though, thanks for the tip.

I think it was the circular arrangement that threw me.

I think that `PHAGE` has shown these to be flat, with a very clear image, how you do that.?

I did notice that the angle of the neighbouring crater was not on the same plane, if these structures were indeed upright, but the image was so intriguing, I thought I would share, and verify with many other eyes.
