A shot of K2 from the classic angle.
A very clear morning with deep blue skies. The night before a raging rainstorm blasted the area. Many times it's like that in the high Karakorams - very fast changing and unstable weather.

Re: oh, wow

Thanks Lolli!

Yes, it really is THE mountain. Coming around the corner on the glacier and then...K2 is right there!

It's breathtaking!

Re: Incredible..

Thanks for the nice words.

I was lucky there. One of the few days of good weather I had during the journey. Not long after this photo was taken, bad weather rolled in at high speed.

Re: Impressive.

Thanks. It's a very nice spot. So many mountains all around you, but there's one that's so much more impressive than all the others - K2.

Re: Magic

Thanks Haider!
Magic moments for sure. It was the first time I saw K2 from that close on the Pakistani side, so the memories from that moment are very special to me.
