At 00:34:55 UTC the Mastcam Right captured this beautiful ridge formed by layered rocks and fragmented slabs, against the background of a clear blue sky.
Note the color difference between the various pieces of “slab” rock and the compact rocks of typical reddish color mostly due to deposited dust.
This is despite the fact that the sand is much darker in tone and bluish-turquoise in places.
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.
