The latitude and longitude are for where the photo was taken, July 6, 2009 (2009.07.06).
The notch in the center is Black Giant Pass, which leads to the eastern end of the Ionian Basin. We were hoping to exit via that pass, but we ran out of time, in part due to snow blindness, so we exited via the much steeper and snowier Solomons Pass, which is the small notch about 1/4 of the way in from the right side of the photo. It was steep and snowy, and, ultimately, quite fun.
I like the hint of purple just above Black Giant Pass. If I'm not mistaken, it's an Earth shadow:
