At 19:11:13 UTC Mastcam Right captured this beautiful ridge formed by stratified rocks rich in conglomerates of various sizes and shapes, against the background of a beautiful blue sky.
Note the difference in color between the top and bottom of this small hill; it is clear that the reddish coloration of the top is mostly due to deposited dust.
Also note the detail visible in the lower left quadrant; you seem to notice relatively deep and wide cavities.
Beware, as the richness of detail is such that it encourages misleading interpretations!
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.
