Anatomy of a sunset

Last July, I was fortunate enough to experience an amazing evening in an amazing location – the dramatic Karakorams – which culminated in the best sunset I’ve ever encountered in the mountains. I’ve been slowly picking away at my photos of the event, over the course of the past five months. Here’s the series:

Masherbrum: Reaching for the sky

Masherbrum: Looming above the Baltoro

Masherbrum: The beautiful mountain

Masherbrum: Alpenglow

Masherbrum: Fire in the sky
My favorite, since it has both alpenglow and lit up clouds

Masherbrum: A blaze of glory

Masherbrum: Last second blues

Thanks guys. :)  Woodswoman, you've put your finger on it: the real star is the subject; not mucking it up during photography is the challenge.

Fantastic! I love shooting sunsets, unfortunately it's usually in my front yard. I've yet to get a sunset in the mountains.

Stunning.  I'd have been shaking so much I would never have been able to take the shot.  Guess that is what tripods are for!!!

The thing is, I wasn't expecting it. We hadn't had anything close to this, the previous 8 days. The sunset just kept building and building, and I was too busy shooting to get nervous about messing up this once in a lifetime event.

Beautiful place. K1 is gorgeous mountain peak and you have captured it well. Too bad it is too dangerous to go there.
