At 20:48:36 UTC Mastcam Left captured this decidedly blue-greenish patch of terrain and rocks with incredible richness of detail.
These rocks should be heavily eroded and instead show a mind-blowing complexity of detail. I recommend looking at this photo in detail, perhaps downloading it, so you can better zoom in on the various details and fully appreciate them.
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.
