WIRED Space Photo of the Day: Curiosity as Ansel Adams

This landscape scene photographed by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows rows of rocks in the foreground and Mount Sharp on the horizon. Curiosity’s Navigation Camera (Navcam) took the component images for this mosaic during a pause in driving.

Ansel Easton Adams was an American photographer and environmentalist. His black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, and in books.
