In this image, we see two well developed cones, most likely the Martian equivalents of cinder cones, which are part of wider volcanic field in Valles Marineris. A stereo image might provide insight about their shape and size. Observations like this might provide hints about explosive conditions at the time of eruption and also why explosive volcanism occurred in this area.
