This is amazingly pretty. I wonder how high they are compared to the Mons?
If you're asking how high is MGS above Mars, then the answer is about 250 miles.
The large-scale image you see here is *not* photographic, but is instead built up as part of the global line-scan image return, so the perspective can be a bit odd. The inset is a real photo (in the sense that any spacecraft images are).
