Nice photo. I'm used to seeing rupes recta as a dark line so this makes an interesting change in lighting, and the photo has shown it has a width to it.

A wonderful picture of the rupus and the rima, but Purbach, Thebit and Arzachel also make a good appearance! 

Plenty good!

Hello Paz!
It presents itself as a dark line when lit from the east. In this case the Sun is to the West illuminating the slope.

The X in the bottom right. Is that the formation that we see when we see the Lunar x?.
