Mongibello, Italian for Beautiful Mountain, certainly describes this 5 mile high mountain on Jupiter's moon Io. The mountain is a double ridge and has an almost vertical sheer on either side. One theory is the mountain was pushed up from below and the other is the remains of electric scarring.

Instead of using a tight realistic style, I am treating this new series as a sort of off planet plein air look.
