At 21:04:18 UTC the Mastcam Left has captured this suggestive hillock of stratified rocks with a beautiful blue sky in the background, slightly veiled by haze.

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 a reduction of noise 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.
