37° 43’ 23.40” N
119° 35' 00.17” W

Equipment: Canon 5 D, 28-105 lens (at 105 mm), polarizing filter

Digital imaging/manipulation: None

Notes: Great place for pictures of the valley. You leave Yosemite Valley and go south to Glacier Point Road. This is the way to Badger Pass Ski Area. The trailhead for Sentinal Dome is marked. If you want a shorter route than the trailhead. Go east beyond the trailhead to about:

37° 43' 10.47" N 119° 34' 50.84" W

The road curves and there is a small dirt parking area on the right. On the other side of the road is an old fire road that takes you to the base of Sentinel Dome. It's a good route for travel after dark. I presume the Park Service doesn't mind. Check a topo map before departure.
