ESA shows us fascinating images of Mars. It shows us the geology in motion on Mars. The image reveals several boulders that fell from the edge of the rock, leaving small holes in the soft material of the region. 

This is an August 3, 2020 photo taken by CaSSIS aboard ESA / Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter, but there are plenty of other images showing how the planet's geology is moving, and instead of falling rocks or slopes, it remains a ground undulating by the wind from Mars (sometimes very strong). In any case, Mars has no tectonic activity. The image captures a piece of the Noctis Labyrinthus region. 

The region consists of plateaus and trenches as in the picture above and stretches for 1200 km and there are huge cliffs, such as 3-4 km taken from the bottom up (the rocks stretch both underground and above soil). In addition to the soils and slopes, you can also see small imapct craters, but quite difficult to see. The image was taken at 265.8 ° E / 8.70 ° S in the Phoenicis Lacus Quadrangle where it intersects with Lus Chasma of Valles Marineris (the "grand canyon") of Mars.
