At 01:14:42 UTC the Mastcam Right captured the right flank of this ridge formed by stratified rocks and fragmented slabs, against the background of another ridge in the distance and a clear blue sky.
Note the difference in color between the various pieces of rock and the compact rocks of typical reddish color mostly due to deposited dust.
The hills in the distance, by contrast, show a much more limited color variety of the typical “Mars Red” color.
I always find the color contrast between the sky and the landscape very striking!
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.
