This image is of the floor of Antoniadi Crater on Mars. The dark branchlike areas may be the remains of channels that carried spring water and were filled with material that hardened. Subsequently they dried up and wind eroded the ground around the channels over millions, maybe even billions, of years, leaving the more resistant channel rocks as ridges.
