At 16:31:54 UTC the Mastcam Right captured this group of boulders and rocks of obvious sedimentary origin.
I find the presence of extremely smooth and rounded rocks and sharp-edged rocks very interesting.
Also note how the soil around the rock at the top of the photo appears darker and in places shaped by the flow of a liquid, probably water condensed on the rocks themselves.
The original image is a black and white encoding of the Bayer mask that has been converted to color through a process called “debayering” or “demosaicing”. In addition, the photo has undergone noise reduction due to Jpeg compression, white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast and color saturation in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
