Sunset on Capitol Peak from K2

This past weekend I made A trip out to Aspen to the Maroon Bells Wilderness to try to get a photo of Capitol Peak from the summit of K2. This was my third attempt at trying to capture this photo due to terrible weather both times before I was unable to make it to the summit. The night before I camped next to Capitol Lake with winds 45+ for nearly 24hrs. I waited til the next afternoon to try to make it up to K2. As soon as i reached the saddle the wind completely stopped which was unexpected and made for a perfect sunset.
