It would be nice to know what we're looking at. :)
The first pic is sand dunes on a deflation surface (wind carved depressions).

The second pic has small dune fields. The depressions and fracture patterns look like permafrost expansion/contraction patterns. At least that's the main terrestrial analog I can think of that could produce similar patterns. Salt dome erosion might produce something similar but postulating the existence of salt domes on Mars would be problematic.

Like I mentioned in my post, it's pictures of Mars' surface.

If you clicked the link, you could get all the detailed info (and additional photos) you desire. I apologize for having you to create an account here to ask what the pictures were.

The pics get bumped off the front page each day and one has to go hunting for the explanations for older pics.

Anyway, I was correct about the dunes.
Scroll down to about mid-page.

and the permafrost.
