Less contrast than night time photography, but this daytime moon (Sun was still 8 degrees above horizon) has a very nice appeal to it.

Shown here are several mountain ranges to the NW of Mare Serenitatis, the most prominent craters and some lone peaks. Also visible is Vallis Alpes, narrow feature cutting the mountain range from E to W.
