Amazingly this image is neither edited nor taken from sci-fi, but is a screengrab from a NASA video.

It’s taken from testing of Project Morpheus:

The Morpheus project provides an autonomous, reusable, rocket-powered, terrestrial vertical take-off/vertical landing vehicle for testing integrated spacecraft and planetary lander technologies. The integrated vertical test bed (VTB) offers a platform to develop, mature, refine, and demonstrate advanced technologies that increase autonomy, reliability, safety, and reusability, and improve navigation and landing capabilities. Morpheus provides a way to help develop these technologies into systems that can be demonstrated and tested. Successfully implementing these capabilities will enable access to landing sites that were previously considered too hazardous to risk a robotic lander mission, much less a human mission.
