Europe's Mars Express captured the original version of this image of Candor Chasma, one small branch of the enormous Valles Marineris, with its High Resolution Stereo Camera. A stereoscopic image contains the necessary information to simulate an entirely different perspective, as above. You can see a number of different views of Candor Chasma here.

That looks just like some of the uplifted and eroded features in this part of the world.

Rather reminds me of our Grand Canyon - except with no railings, and fewer tourists, of course :)
