Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2017.10.27
Vantage Point: Yak Peak

Caption: RiYueBaoJing seen from the summit of Yak Peak (4,765m)

PhotoDescr: We heard about RiYueBaoJing (日月宝镜) peak from various online climbing reports, but couldn't ID it until two of us topped Yak Peak (4,765m).
