Am I the Only One?

Is there anyone else who thinks that this angle shot of Qungmoganze is reminiscent of photos looking at K2 from Concordia/Baltoro Glacier? (http://www.summitpost.org/k2-from-k2-bc-route/118357).

This might be complete BS, but the idea just struck me when I first looked at this photo.

Re: Am I the Only One?

Thanks Ryder.
I think the mountains are similar in some ways. The pyramidal shape, the long ridges etc.
K2 looks extremely massive and it is dominating its surroundings even if it's located in an area with other 8000m peaks.
Qungmoganze is a solitary mountain and therefore looks very impressive.
Both belongs to my list of most striking peaks I have seen.
