For obvious safety reasons, the areas surrounding the Apollo landing sites were relatively flat and did not have a lot of tall features. However,
there are a few tall boulders in some of the landing site pictures.
Fir example, here is an image from the Apollo 17 landing site:
Apollo 17 Site
As you can see, the legs of the Lunar Lander (center of the image) are casting a long shadow, plus various other objects that are also casting equally
long shadows (there is one to the left of the lander in above image, plus some others). The Lunar Lander's legs are about 10 feet (3 meters) tall.
There are a few -- but understandably not many -- objects around the landing site that are at least that tall.
