I really like this sketch of Vallis Schröteri.
Just beautiful Achim, nice range of tones bringing out the features here.
Very nice! I observed Vallis Schröteri my first time on 2 Jan as well, just a few hours later from Bonn. It was my first time observing this striking set of features. What a difference a few hours make on the intensity of the shadows. Excellent job capturing the scene.
