At 11:47:35 UTC Mastcam Right captured this beautiful layered knoll with a clear blue sky.
A nice variety of colors, from reddish rocks to rocks tending to blue, from lighter to darker.
Curiosity is analyzing more and more closely this rock formation that from a distance showed interesting variations in color and albedo.
I hope to be able to document these color variations also with closer photos like this one…
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.
