Montes Teneriffe, Alpes and Plato crater on the Moon.

In these images, are delimited two types of terrain: A smooth one, and one with hights. The smooth land is a small part Mare Imbrium basin, and the floor of the crater Plato (101 km), which is not at all different in color and appearance from the basin, and the high land is seen here as the Montes Alpes, and several isolated mountains of the Mare Imbrium, as Montes Teneriffe and Mons Pico.

What I like about this picture, is the shadow edge of the crater Plato projected on the floor of this beautiful crater.
