Hi,

Thanks Rachel, was wondering if I had caught the rille along the bottom of the valley but I think it's just wishful thinking, looks like shadow.

All the best

Wow, that's fantastic Dave. I can clearly see detail in the valley - not many shots show such detail. Fine shot.
All best,
David.

Hi,

Thanks David, been having a few problems but I've dropped the frame rate and gone for around 200 frames and this seems to have helped a bit.

All the best

Nice details! You might not have the Alpine Valley Rille, but you certainly got a couple of the sections of Rimae Plato 8)
