The images reveal new clues about how the lakes formed and about Titanis Earth-like ihydrologici cycle, which involves hydrocarbons rather than water.
While there is one large lake and a few smaller ones near Titanis south pole, almost all of Titanis lakes appear near the moonis north pole.
Cassini scientists have been able to study much of the terrain with radar, which can penetrate beneath Titanis clouds and thick haze.
Until now, Cassiniis visual and infrared mapping spectrometer and imaging science subsystem had only been able to capture distant, oblique or partial views of this area.
Several factors combined recently to give these instruments great observing opportunities.
Two recent flybys provided better viewing geometry.
Sunlight has also begun to pierce the winter darkness that shrouded Titanis north pole at Cassiniis arrival in the Saturn system nine years ago.
And a thick cap of haze that once hung over the north pole has also dissipated as northern summer approaches.
Also Titanis beautiful, nearly cloudless, rain-free weather continued during Cassiniis flybys this past summer.
