Astronaut James B. Irwin, lunar module pilot, works at the Lunar Roving Vehicle during the first Apollo 15 lunar surface extravehicular activity (EVA-1) at the Hadley-Apennine landing site. A portion of the Lunar Module "Falcon" is on the left. The undeployed Laser Ranging Retro Reflector (LR-3) lies atop the LM's MOdulear Equipment Stowage Assembly (MESA). This view is looking slightly west of south. Hadley Delta and the Apennine Front are in the background to the left. St. George crater is approximately 5 kilometers (about 3 statute miles) in the distance behind Irwin's head. This photograph was taken by Astronaut David R. Scott, Apollo 15 commander.
