NASA's HIRise camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a series of stunning new photographs.
In total 236 new images have been revealed covering the planet from pole to pole, from the beginning of this year the team are even accepting suggestions from the public as to where to point the camera for its next shots.
A new batch of sharp Martian close-ups from NASA's HiRISE camera were released on Sept. 1. HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) has been circling Mars on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter for four years now, taking dramatic photos of the red planet with a telephoto lens to make any paparazzi jealous.

Cool pictures. , taking dramatic photos of the red planet with a telephoto lens to make any paparazzi jealous. But they need someone else to write their similes.

Absolutely wonderful pictures. I'm going to go through them all tonight. How long before we get a "THERE ARE TREES ON MARS" thread? Nibs
