Mountains by the Sea

image by Maximilian Teodorescu, Cota 1000 (SInaia), Romania

This image presents Mare Crisium and it's immediate surroundings. What I've liked when imaging this area was the incredible tri-dimensional relief next to the terminator, also very well observable at the eyepiece, despite the rather poor seeing conditions. Mare Crisium is perhaps the best place on the Moon to look for a nearly horizontal view of mountains coming up from the "sea". This sea is actually four times as wide as the Black Sea, my country's only bordering sea.
